Local Support Groups


Meeting, talking, and being around other people who have M.E. can be of enormous help and a good way of combating the isolation that this disability all too often brings with it.

Whether you are more comfortable meeting up with people online, or can manage to attend local support groups in person, we hope you will find something on this page that will help.

We are very pleased to list Local Support Groups on our website, and help promote any meetings or events on our social media.

If you would like us to do so – or wish to update any of the existing details – then please contact our website content manager.

Please Note:
Local Support Groups are not affiliated with the ME Association and we cannot be held responsible for any problems you might encounter with them. We provide a home for their listings and try our best to keep contact details accurate but depend on the Groups to keep us informed of any changes.

ME Association Social Media

The ME Association has a very active and supportive community on social media: Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

We are more than happy to host your questions, and can do so anonymously if you prefer.

Relevant content is shared throughout the day, and you will find it a good place to discuss issues of importance.
