What we do

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 (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 from our website here, either for one year or recurring yearly. If you encounter any difficulty purchasing your membership online, please contact us at info@sheffieldmegroup.co.uk.

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



Phone our office on 01142536700 or email us at info@sheffieldmegroup.co.uk for information about the group, ME, fibromyalgia and what we do in South Yorkshire.



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.



Our team of welfare benefits advisers are there to help our members receive all the support they are entitled to from the government and local council. From disability benefits, to blue badges, to council tax support and more, they are ready to help. Get in touch on benefits@sheffieldmegroup.co.uk


To keep members up to date with everything related to the Sheffield ME and Fibromyalgia Group, we produce our own quarterly newsletter. This has all the key dates for upcoming events, news from around the world about ME and fibro, updates on everything the group has been doing together and more. Become a member to receive your copy. We encourage our members to send us any magazine material that they find relevant to magazine@sheffieldmegroup.co.uk. Thank you!



As well as our quarterly newsletter we send out e-news blasts updating you on the biggest upcoming events such as our annual conference. Sign up here.



Along with a team of volunteers we run weekly drop ins at pubs and coffee shops near you. This is you chance to meet up with other people with ME and fibro, chat with people who understand what you're going through without questioning you and generally have a laugh. Find out when the next drop in is on our Events page.



Each Autumn we hold our annual conference with a prestigious key note speaker. We also supply a free buffet for members. Past speakers have included Dr Charles Shepherd and David Tuller, DrPH.
