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: 7 January 2021
In 2021, membership is free.
KCIMESG is holding meetings over Zoom, and looking into providing activities using the online platform.
