Action for M.E. works to end the ignorance, injustice and neglect faced by people with disabling neurological condition Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.), sometimes diagnosed as chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS, or M.E./CFS).

 

M.E. affects an estimated 250,000 men, women and children in the UK, a quarter of whom are housebound. The condition is characterised by post-exertional malaise (the ability to recover after expending even small amounts of energy) and severe exhaustion, but can also include a range of additional symptoms including chronic muscle and joint pain, cognitive problems, sleep disturbance, digestive problems, inflammation and autonomic dysfunction.

 

Action for M.E. provides vital support and information to thousands of people each year through our Online M.E. Centre, factsheets, booklets and dedicated information lines. We fund and work to encourage more research into the symptoms and potential causes of M.E. and raise awareness of the impact of M.E. among policy-makers, parliamentarians, the press and the public.

 

As part of our team you will receive:

– a fundraising pack filled with advice, tips, posters and sponsorship forms

– the support and help of our fundraising team

– an Action for M.E. running vest

– access to our fundraising materials including balloons, leaflets and collection tins.

– training tips and advice from Olympian and Action for M.E. ambassador Anna Hemmings

 

Most importantly, you will know that that you have helped us provide even more of our vital resources to people affected by M.E. To get involved, email our fundraising team or call on 0117 937 6626.

 

Thank you.

Our vision is a world without M.E. Your support will help us get there.
