Local M.E. support groups

Local M.E. support groups can be an invaluable source of information, advice, strength and support. They are run by volunteers, most of whom have M.E. themselves. Some groups welcome anyone affected by M.E., including carers; others also cater for people with fibromyalgia as well as M.E.

The services offered by your local group may include:

  • regular meetings and social events
  • information and advice on welfare benefits and healthcare
  • telephone and email support
  • a befriending service
  • newsletters and other publications.

Getting in touch with them means the chance to speak to someone nearby who understands what you're going through.

While some groups have been unable to maintain contact during the pandemic, many have moved online. To find your local group, please get in touch.
