Sheffield ME and Fibromyalgia Group is a small registered charity providing information, support and a point of contact for people of all ages with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS), fibromyalgia and long covid, their families and their carers, in the wider Sheffield area.
The Group also seeks to raise general awareness of ME and fibromyalgia, and to educate the general public through the promotion and dissemination of knowledge about these illnesses. They are chronic, debilitating illnesses with no known cure.
The Group has part-time employees and a Board of Trustees consisting mainly of people with ME and fibromyalgia. The Board of Trustees consists of up to ten members. They meet once per month on average and the Group holds its AGM in May/June each year. We are a Registered Charity and as such produce an Annual Report and Financial Statement.
Our patrons are Berlie Doherty, local children's author, and The Very Reverend Peter Bradley.
This year, we are celebrating our 20th year as a charity! Read more about it in our Chair Carolyn's blog.
