Our Vision

Our Vision is for a Wales where adults and children with ME and CFS and their carers are taken seriously and treated with respect, where diagnosis, treatment and services are accessible without a battle.

Our aims

The Welsh Association of ME & CFS Support is a voluntary organisation which gives a national voice to people with ME & CFS in Wales, their carers and families, in order to improve services, access to services, awareness and support.

We do this by:

  • campaigning for recognition of ME as a neurological illness in line with the WHO classification and the results of biomedical research
  • campaigning for appropriate health, education, social care services, benefits and research
  • raising awareness of ME
  • offering support to young people with ME
  • providing information in Welsh and English for people with ME, their families & professionals
  • aiding local support groups

Medical advisers: Dr. Betty Dowsett, Dr. Nigel Speight

Patron: Lord Barry Jones
