What we do
Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.) is a long-term (chronic), fluctuating, neurological condition that affects an estimated 250,000 people in the UK, including around 21,000 children and young people.
We provide a helpline for support and information for children and young people. We offer a free membership service for Under-18s who can access our online message board, interactive members-only magazine, Pen-Pals team and more services that are for our Young Members and run by Young Members too. We offer volunteering opportunities to our Young Members this helps enhance their skills and CV’s, increase confidence and reduces isolation too.
Alongside providing information, support and advice to people to help improve their health and well-being, Action for M.E. works with professionals to enhance the care and support that people with M.E. receive and funds pilot research projects to advance knowledge of the illness.
