M.E. Organisations

 
 
 

I have been building this useful resource since launching M.E. Support in 2001. At the time I was the first person to have gathered this information, having searched the internet and contacted numerous groups. You will now find similar lists elsewhere but this remains a popular part of M.E. Support. I have split the list into two alphabetical sections; National, International & Overseas, along with UK & Republic of Ireland. M.E. Support is not associated with these organisations, and the details are provided for information purposes only. Please read the Terms & Conditions - Privacy Policy for further information.

Groups in England are listed by counties but the catchment areas of some groups extend into more than one county: although you may live in one county, your nearest group may be based in another. If the group does not have a website or an e-mail address, you will find their telephone number and/or postal address. Please Contact Me if you have a submission, update or locate an error. This page was last reviewed in January 2016 and I currently have no further information.

You will find links to other sources of information and support throughout M.E. Support. This includes Internet based groups and forums, along with websites and blogs created by fellow M.E. sufferers. Social media is another great way to meet other sufferers and seek advice; please visit the M.E. Support Facebook Page for further details. Caution is strongly advised when searching the World Wide Web.

What is a Spoonie?

A 'spoonie' can refer to any individual who suffers from a chronic illness.

The Spoon Theory was written
by Christine Miserandino and
explains what it is like to live with a chronic illness. The theory uses a metaphor of spoons to turn energy into a measurable concept.

 
 
 

Quote of the Month

The worst thing you can do to a person with an invisible illness is make them feel like they need to prove how sick they are.
