This is the website for the Kirklees and Calderdale Independent ME Support Group. The group was formed by M.E. sufferers and their carers to provide support, information and understanding for local people who are learning to live with this illness.
If you have been diagnosed with ME/CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome) or suspect you may be a sufferer, or care for someone with the illness, we welcome you to join us and find acceptance, friendship, information and support from others who understand and have experienced your difficulties.
Update: 20 April 2018
If you live in Kirklees or Calderdale, have ME, and are not currently a member of KCIMESG, we have made it easier for you to become a member. Our membership page now has a simple form which you can complete. You can also pay your membership fee online. The same form can be used to renew membership. This form was updated in March.
An additional benefit of membership is that you can save up to £12 on our ME-friendly qi gong sessions. Read all about those sessions on our Events page.
Our April coffee meeting dates are in the Events section.
We would like to thank Barry Sheerman MP for asking a couple of questions for us in Parliament on the subject of better communication about ME patients between NHS organisations.
We are considering making our newsletter available in audio for members whose ME is aggravated by them reading print. Please contact us if you are interested in receiving an audio version of our newsletter. If you are not a member, you can receive our newsletter by joining KCIMESG.
