Action for M.E.'s 2016 conference will ask how we can we collaborate more effectively to better meet the needs of people with
M.E. at a local, national and international level. It will be followed by our Annual General Meeting.

Anyone affected by or with an interest in M.E. is welcome, including carers, health and social care professionals, researchers
and policy-makers. 

The programme will focus on the importance of collaboration, using our new five-year strategy as a springboard for presentations
and discussions. Throughout the day, we will aim to identify barriers to effective collaboration, how these barriers can be addressed
and key actions for us to take forward. 

The venue is fully accessible with plenty of space in the auditorium to lie down for those who need to. A quiet room is
provided, along with tea and coffee during the breaks, and a hot buffet lunch.

Registration is free and we look forward to seeing you on the day.

TAKING PART FROM HOME

For those who aren’t able to attend, we are intending to livestream the event so you can watch from home – please see Action for M.E.’s website for updates on this.
