Research we fund

Research we fund

As part of our 2016 - 2021 strategy, Action for M.E. pledged to focus 20% of our activities on bringing more research, more money and more people into the field. All funding applications we receive are put through a five-stage funding assessment process, overseen by our Research Panel, with input from our Scientific Advisory Panel and the people affected by M.E. who sit on our Voice Committee.

Our research-related activity is funded by our Clare Francis Research Fund, named for our President.

You can make a donation to our research activities by:

  • visiting our Clare Francis Research Fund page on JustGiving
  • calling 0117 927 9551 and speaking to the Fundraising team
  • texting CFRF87 and your donation amount (£3, £5 or £10) to 70070 (texts to this number are free).
