  • investing in innovative research, investigating the biology of M.E. to improve our understanding of M.E. leading to better treatments and ultimately a cure.
  • facilitating peer-support through our M.E. Friends Online forum; 85% of users tell us they feel less isolated as a result
  • our Welfare Advice and Support Service, empowering people affected by M.E. to access the financial support they are entitled to
  • raising awareness of M.E. and its impact, including through our campaign films, viewed nearly 23,000 times in 2014

For those experiencing financial hardship, we may be able to offer a waiver for Supporting Membership. Please contact us for more information.
