Action for M.E.

Action for M.E. is an executive member of the recently launched UK CFS/ME Research Collaborative and co-founder and funder of the UK Biobank, which has recently attracted more than £1 million of mainstream funding from the USA.

Our promise to people affected by M.E. is that we will:

  • Increase awareness and understanding of the illness and its impact alongside working to influence policy-makers and others to increase investment in research and improve the services, care and support for people affected by M.E.
  • Empower and support people affected by M.E. to live life to their full potential, while providing them with a wide range of up-to-date information about M.E. and resources available to them.
  • Support high quality, evidenced-based medical and social policy research and invest in pilot research projects to help us learn more and to stimulate greater mainstream funding of M.E. research.

Pulling together the voices, views and opinions of key stakeholders has helped us identify five key priorities that will shape our current and future activities. These are:

  • Awareness and understanding
  • Health
  • Welfare
  • Research
  • Employment.
