    Working to drive high quality biomedical research



At Action for M.E. we're working to end the ignorance, injustice and neglect experienced by people with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.)

What is M.E.

Imagine having months off from work because you are so ill, so pole-axed by fatigue and pain, that you are no longer able to tell the time when you look at the face of a clock. Imagine you can no longer read even the shortest paragraph because your power of concentration is reduced to zero.

That is the experience of many thousands of people with the chronic neurological condition Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.), sometimes diagnosed as chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS, or M.E./CFS), which is estimated to affect around 250,000 men, women and children in the UK.

Improving lives through action
We provide a lifeline of support to thousands of people each year, campaign to raise awareness of M.E. and work to encourage more high quality biomedical research.

We're reliant on our donors and fundraisers to make this possible. By supporting Action for M.E. you can help ensure that people with M.E. are not alone in facing the challenges that the condition creates.

Together we can stop M.E. stealing lives.
