What services and support does Action for M.E. offer?

If you have M.E., getting the right information early on will help you to manage the illness and give you the best chance of recovery. As well as M.E. news, up-to-date research and our latest campaign activities, we offer information about:

We also have lots of advice about caring for someone with M.E., telling family and friends, welfare benefits and social care, education and employment.

You can find factsheets and booklets in our Resources section, or you can contact our free Information and Support Service for people with M.E., their carers and parents. Our friendly team understand the challenges of living with M.E., and includes two specialist advisors providing welfare benefits and employment advice.

Meeting others with M.E.

M.E. can be very isolating. We offer three-peer support forums for young people and adults, and you can share your ideas and experiences on Action for M.E. Facebook and Twitter. You can also read about other people's experiences of M.E. in our Stories section.

Our lively membership magazine, InterAction, features our latest campaign news, readers' experiences, informative articles, research, letters, book reviews, giveaways and more. Join us as a Supporting Member, and you will receive InterAction by post three times a year.

Our five-year Mentor M.E. project, launched in 2016, aims to empower people living with M.E. and their carers to manage the condition by growing a new peer-mentoring network in Scotland between 2016 and 2021. Want to get involved? Find out more.
