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 or Long Covid, 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 medical research
We’re here for you…
We help people with ME/CFS and Long Covid, but you don’t need to be personally affected to join. Carers, family, friends, 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 an essential part of charity income and we put member's interests at the heart of everything we do!
