Action for M.E.

Action for M.E.

Action for M.E. is the UK’s leading charity which raises funds to help improve the lives of people with M.E. 250,000 people in the UK have M.E. – this is more than the number of people affected with M.S., Motor Neurone Disease and Parkinson’s put together. Symptoms of M.E. are complex and variable – including severe muscle pain, memory loss, poor concentration and sensitivity to light and sound. For all people with M.E. there is an overwhelming feeling of extreme fatigue. This is no normal tiredness but can mean that a person feels unable to wash themselves or clean their teeth, and for many people M.E. means having to rely on a carer. 25% are house or bed bound. Action for M.E. provides emotional and practical support through our help-lines and comprehensive information through our publications and guides. We strive to transform the image of M.E. in the minds of the general public, to improve public services and the way in which people with M.E. are treated and to encourage scientific research to find the cause of the illness, better treatments and in the fullness of time a cure. But to provide these services we need your help. Your donations can really make a difference to peoples’ lives.
