“The ME Association is a small medical charity and yet I feel very proud of our achievements.
“Management and strategic direction is provided by a dedicated team of trustees, including several, like Dr Charles Shepherd, who work on a daily basis, volunteering their time for free.
“Towards the end of 2019, we announced a decision to invest an additional £200,000 in M.E. research. And, in 2020, we made a grant to Professor Nicola Clague-Baker and her team for a feasibility study that will measure physiological changes in daily activity in people with M.E. in their own homes.
“Our team of experienced staff are committed to supporting the needs of this community. We have a full-time member and more part-time staff who work from home often on a flexible basis.
“We also have a terrific team of volunteers up and down the country who help ensure your telephone helpline is available 365 days a year.
“Almost everyone who works for the ME Association has personal experience of M.E., is currently living with the condition or has a loved one who has been affected.
“This knowledge and understanding is what helps us to be who we are – delivering a quality service when and where it’s needed.
“We provide much-needed support, reliable information, a voice when it’s needed, and we believe good quality research investment to be a key priority.
“We couldn’t do any of this without your help and we are incredibly grateful for your trust…”
