Find your local ME/CFS organisation

A list of not-for-profits and charities around Australia

Right around Australia there are registered not-for-profits and charities dedicated to helping and supporting their local patients. You can head on over to their Facebook pages and websites and keep up to date on their local events throughout the year – some also have newsletters you can subscribe to. Remember, most are run by volunteers who are unwell, so there may be a delay to receiving a reply. Those with skills and time may like to offer to volunteer for their local state organisation.

If you are looking for events run during May awareness month, then you might like to check out our page at may12th.org.au/get-involved/events-around-australia/.
