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: September 2016
KCIMESG will be screening the Forgotten Plague, a DVD about ME on 3 October at the Methodist Mission in Huddersfield. As well as being of interest to our members, we think the film will also be of interest to health and social care professionals. There is more information in the events section.
We intend to make 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.
Our Halifax coffee meeting scheduled for 13 September has been cancelled.
The links section has evolved into a resources section, which has information about books and DVDs, and more links than before. The resources section is now divided into several sections.

Information about our family day and coffee meetings have been added to the Events section.
