Throughout the North East there are a number of local ME Support Groups. All groups are run by local people with ME and carers, each with its own individual style. Most groups meet on a regular basis for coffee and a chat or perhaps a talk by an invited speaker. Some are proactive in the campaign to raise awareness in their localities. All offer a confidential and sympathetic ear and an opportunity to meet and share information. We endeavour to work closely with all the local groups and provide practical help to set up and maintain their service.
