The M.E. Trust (registered charity no.1142583) is working towards the day when all those suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) have access to the best resources for diagnosis, treatment and care to enable early and full recovery.
Approximately a quarter of a million people in the UK suffer from CFS/ME, an umbrella term for a neurological disease or spectrum of diseases that cause extreme exhaustion, muscle and joint pain, noise and light sensitivities, cognitive impairment, digestive problems and a host of other symptoms.
There is no scientific cure for CFS/ME and there has been a lack of adequate care and support for the majority of people with the disease.
Our Charitable Objects
The M.E. Trust’s charitable objects are:
1. To provide relief and proper care to those suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis or related conditions; and
2. To promote for the public benefit education and research, and the promulgation of the results of such research, into or in connection with the condition.
Funding Hospital Care
Great oaks start from small acorns
The M.E. Trust is fundraising to provide transformational patient treatment and care for people with CFS/M.E. Our fundraising campaign supports our vision to make the highest levels of clinical and compassionate care available to people with CFS/ME. We are already funding life transforming care and aim to create a CFS/ME Centre of Excellence, the first of it’s kind in the UK. The Centre will offer a deep understanding of the illness and care for the person in body, mind and spirit.
The M.E. Trust aims to work with the NHS to improve facilities for people with CFS/ME.

Our Founder Hannah Clifton carries out speaking engagements and has authored articles to encourage and inform others and raise awareness.
