Education and Employment

Dr Charles Shepherd (Hon. Medical Adviser to the ME Association) has written helpful leaflets that cover general employment concerns, ill-health early retirement and pensions, permanent health insurance and, more recently, employment issues relating to the Covid-19 lockdown.

He is joined by Ann Innes (Welfare Adviser to the ME Association) who provides helpful guides to benefits, and Pippa Stacey, another M.E. advocate and lifestyle blogger, who has written a terrific guide to studying at university with M.E. based on her own experiences.

Please note these are downloads. You can read them on-screen and save to your computer, phone or other device and can attach them to any email you might need to send. But you will need access to a printer if you wish them printed.
