Welcome to AYME

The Association of Young People with ME (AYME) is a UK charity that provides support for children and young people aged up to 26 who have ME/CFS. AYME is also here to help and support parents, carers and professionals in health, education and social care. 

This site shares some of the wide range of information and experience we have available, including features on health, education and real life accounts from young people with ME/CFS.

New: AYME Supporters: for friends and professionals and all those who wish to support AYME in the work we do and receive news, research and fundraising updates.

Re-launched: Parents and Carers (previously LINK) AYME understands that being a family member of a young person with ME/CFS comes with its own set of challenges. That's why we set up the Parents and Carers group, to equip you with the support and information you need, every step of the way.
