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.

Join our campaign for the run-up to the next General Election NOW!
Members, parents and carers - please write to your MPs using the template letters (downloadable below), and help AYME to get your voices heard on behalf of all of the children and the young people in this country affected by ME/CFS.
The forthcoming election in May 2015 is an opportunity for us all to shout about the lack of services and understanding of the condition throughout the UK.
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.

AYME is collecting members' stories, and the ones we've received so far are truly inspiring. We hope that they bring hope to young people, and to their families and supporters. You can share your own story by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to ask for a template.
