The ME Association is a campaigning national charity that provides information and support to 240,000 people with ME (chronic fatigue syndrome) in the UK. We have a quarterly magazine and run the ME Connect helpline on 0844 576 5326 – open every day of the week: 10am-12noon, 2-4pm and 7-9pm.
As yet, there are no universally recognised treatments for the illness and there is no cure.
Our special fund – the MEA Ramsay Research Fund – is dedicated to funding research into the physical nature and causes of ME as part of a worldwide effort to achieve recognition for the severity of the illness.
