Our vision, mission and values
Our vision is a world without M.E.
Our mission is empowering people with M.E. to fulfil their potential and secure the care and support they need, while working towards a greater understanding of the illness and ultimately a cure.
Shared values are held with high regard in our organisation and reflect how we seek to work with our supporters, partners and other key stakeholders. They reflect the attitudes, beliefs and behaviour that we value in each other and underpin our whole approach and culture.
- Empathy: the majority of our Trustees have direct experience of M.E. themselves. Their strategic leadership will set the parameters that reflect this intrinsic empathy and instil this value into all staff and volunteers who do not have such direct experience.
- Clarity: we will be clear and transparent about what we’re doing, why we’re doing it and how we’re doing it.
- Courage: we will have the moral courage to campaign openly on behalf of people affected by M.E. and to state our evidence-based policies regardless of how unpopular this may make us.
- Collaboration: we will work collaboratively and inclusively with others to create capacity and achieve the level of transformation needed.
