The charity is run by volunteers - patients or parents of children with ME – but on a professional basis with a passion for developing a scientific foundation for research into ME. We do not receive, and have never received funding from government or government organisations. The charity decided early on that biomedical research into ME was crucial in order to make progress in treating this disease. We also decided that education of healthcare staff, the media, government departments, patient groups and patients was to be a priority. Our conferences and, later, our research colloquiums, were organised from the beginning in order to provide a platform for research and a means of facilitating education about ME. In order to bring the best research to bear on ME and to bring the best education to healthcare and patients we welcome your support.
