​Raising awareness of M.E. in a school near you

August 22, 2018

Would your secondary school benefit from an awareness- raising session?

M.E. is the main cause of long-term absence from schools. Yet there is very little awareness and understanding of the illness or its impact on children, young people and their families, and the challenges faced educational in working to support them.

Funded by the Big Lottery Awards for All, Action for M.E.’s Educate M.E. is working in partnership with a steering group of parents based in different local authorities in Scotland to develop and deliver five awareness-raising sessions in secondary schools.

If you believe your local secondary school in Scotland who would benefit from an awareness- raising session or would simply like to find out more about the project, our Project Coordinator Scotland, Theresa Burns, would like to hear from you.

You can get in touch with Theresa by email or by phone on 07753 247098.
