AYME (pronounced ‘aim’) is the largest charity for children and young people with ME/CFS, with over ten years of knowledge and experience about how this illness affects children and young people.
We know how important it is to have good, understanding friends, which is why AYME offers lots of friendship-supporting services like an online community, pen pals, e-mates, buddies and local get-togethers, all run by other young people with ME/CFS. They are all under 26 and have probably been through similar situations as you. Members get a bi-monthly magazine packed with young people’s news and views. You can choose to get involved or just enjoy reading and listening to what others are getting up to.
Health, education and social care professionals are also welcome to contact us. We offer information and training sessions and are keen to share our experience and knowledge about ME/CFS and children to increase recognition and understanding. Please call us on 08451 23 23 89, email us or join AYMElink as a professional.
