Objectives

Sheffield ME & Fibromyalgia group provides support to those living with ME, fibromyalgic, chronic fatigue and long covid. We provide support groups, information on condition management, navigating the NHS and the latest research, online activities for our housebound and bedbound members, and a benefits and social care advisory service. 

Other projects have included patient involvement initiatives, digital inclusion, and campaigning. 

Our charity is essential as very little help is available via the NHS and no significant treatment or cure being available for an isolating and devastating disease that some have described as a 'living death'.

Activities

We run a benefits and social care service helping people access their rightful support entitlements in Universal Credit, ESA and PIP. We also help people apply for social care to meet their needs. 

We connect the 75% of our housebound membership through online activities, telephone befriending, and for those who are able to go out we host drop ins and cafe support groups in accessible locations.
