Our staff care passionately about people affected by M.E., and has daily contact with patients, carers and professionals by telephone, email and social media.
In 2014-2015, we answered more than 2,100 calls and provided nearly 45,000 copies of our booklets, factsheets and articles, ensuring that people affected by M.E. have the key information and signposting they needed to access care and support, including welfare benefits
Action for M.E.’s free regional advocacy service, launching in April 2019, will support adults (age 18 and over) living with M.E. in the Midlands and South West. Advocacy is a process which empowers people to stand up for their rights, and have their views, wishes and needs included in decisions which affect them.
Working to increase awareness of M.E. among the public, professionals, parliamentarians and the press, our Communications and engagement team manage our website, publications and social media and build relationships with journalists, MPs and policymakers, promoting the work of the charity and highlighting the impact of M.E. in our ongoing campaign for change.
Our fundraising team support our fantastic community fundraisers and engage with charitable trusts and other donors. They also look after our Supporting and Lifelong Members, whose support enables us to continue our vital work.
Along with our Scottish Hub, which offers information, news and signposting for people in Scotland, we lead a number of projects focused on raising awareness of M.E. and empowering those affected by the condition to access care and support.
