What we do

Sheffield ME Group is a small registered charity providing information, support and a point of contact for people of all ages with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) and Fibromyalgia, 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, which can last for many years, with no known cure.

Below are a list of the services we offer. To have access to all of these services, you must become a member.

Membership costs a single payment of £12 for the year. This can be purchased through the online store, in person here at The Circle or by post.

Once paid you will have full access to all our services and events!

INFORMATION

Throughout the year we run outreach stalls at events and places across South Yorkshire. Through this we aim to raise awareness of ME and fibromyalgia, connect with more people with these diseases as well as their families and friends, and network with other organisations to increase the profile and understanding of these diseases in the area.
