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.
