ME Essential Magazine
Support Your Charity
ME ESSENTIAL MAGAZINE
Members of the ME Association receive the quarterly magazine – ME Essential – delivered to straight their homes.
It features exclusive articles, medical and scientific developments, Ask the Doctor, stories and opinions from people living with ME/CFS, and keeps members apprised of recent news. Quite simply, it is the best magazine available and the feedback we receive proves it!
We support, inform, campaign, and invest in biomedical research
We’re here for you…
While our services are primarily aimed at people with myalgic encephalopathy / chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS), you don’t need to have this medical condition to join. Carers, family-members, and healthcare professionals are all represented as members of the charity.
The more members we have, the more representative we can be which is especially useful when we take part in debates, decide to launch a campaign, discuss medical education, or raise awareness in parliament.
Membership subscriptions are a vital part of our charity income and together with donations they allow us to help make the UK a better place for people with ME/CFS.
How to Join
Full Membership is available to all adults with ME/CFS, carers and anyone with an interest in the disease. Annual membership costs:
- £18.00 (UK residents and BFPO)
- £24.00 (Mainland Europe including Republic of Ireland)

Each full member is entitled to vote at our Annual and Extraordinary General Meetings.
When we have received your subscription, we will send you a copy of the latest issue of our magazine and a welcome pack.
