Where does your money go?

We provide key information, support and signposting on all matters relating to living with M.E.; raise awareness of M.E. among the public, professionals, parliamentarians and the media; lobby key stakeholders, and encourage a steadily developing research agenda.

Aside from a small grant of £5,000 from the Scottish Government, Action for M.E. is entirely funded through the generosity of charitable trusts and our amazing supporters and fundraisers, who donate to support our vital work.

We are continually growing the charity in order to support more people affected by M.E. and we aim to raise £3 to £5 for every pound spent on fundraising.

During the past financial year (April 2014 to March 2015), the donations we received were spent on:

  • charitable activity (67%)
  • fundraising (21%)
  • administration (9%)
  • governance (3%)

We raised £3.49 for every £1 invested, which is an improvement on £3 the previous year.
