Stamp out stigma

Working with people with M.E. to share their stories with the public, professionals and policy-makers helps increase understanding of the illness and its impact.

Sign up to payroll giving

Payroll giving allows anyone who pays UK income tax to give regularly to the charity of their choice tax effectively. Because payroll giving donations are deducted before tax, each £1 you give will only cost you 80p (or 60p if you're a higher rate tax payer).

If your employer matches an employee’s donation, you can make twice the difference! Not only is it one of the most simple and cost-effective ways to donate to Action for M.E., it also ensures a reliable source of income to support our vital services.
