“ME/CFS South Australia is a volunteer-run charity that has been helping the ME/CFS community since 1987.
ME/CFS South Australia recognises that many members of the wider community know very little about ME/CFS or about the impact of this illness.
ME/CFS South Australia’s education, research and advocacy aim to increase knowledge and understanding so that people with ME/CFS:
- receive appropriate diagnosis, treatment and care
- receive equitable access to health, welfare, disability, education and community services
- experience improved quality of life.
To further our mission, ME/CFS SA has representatives on decision-making bodies in both government agencies and not-for-profit organisations.
We contribute to medical research through consultation and by recruiting participants to studies that aim to increase understanding of and develop treatments for ME/CFS and related conditions.
ME/CFS South Australia works with partners at local, state, national and international levels to bring about change.
We provide a range of services for the ME/CFS community
People in the ME/CFS community have different needs in the ways they communicate. We seek to meet these varied needs by catering for people who are housebound or geographically isolated; those who are able to meet face to face; people who can only read hard copy; and those who are online.
While most of our services are available to the public, only members receive our magazine, newsletters and access to the Member Resources area of our website. Online seminars and special events are only open to members. Annual membership is only $5.”
