This is the home page of the York and District
M.E. Support Group, an independent group that provides support
and information to people who have M.E., their careers, family and
friends. The site gives an overview of the group, some information
about M.E. and an e-version of their newsletter together with a set of
M.E. related links.
Who Are We and What Do We Do?
As already stated, we provide support and information for
affected by M.E. We are a friendly and approachable group
with about 226 members around York and the East side of North
Yorkshire, in the UK. We hold an informal monthly meeting, where
members can meet others, socialise, exchange information and views in
an understanding and non-judgemental
atmosphere. We have
a friendship network which allows a flexible way to contact
within their needs and requirements, be it via letter, phone or email.
The group distributes a newsletter three times a year which
all aspects of the illness but concentrates on local issues. We also
have an M.E.
telephone information line for members with general queries.
All costs are covered by fund raising activities; we ask for no
membership fee. We campaign for more recognition, research, better
benefits and to raise awareness of ME/CFS within the local media and
health care organisations. We have been working with Selby and
Primary Care Trust and others over many years to improve health
