We are so pleased to be able to announce we are expanding our social support group

offerings. We continue to seek feedback, listen and respond to our community.

We continue to offer our 1st and 3rd Thursday ME/FM patient groups. We are still piloting our Long COVID groups. Please note that we have paused our Allied and Loved Ones sessions for the summer months. All offerings are now for those living with ME/FM and/or Long COVID.

Registration is required for each session.


This month we are adding:

1) Long COVID + ME group (for those who have developed ME after a COVID infection).

2) A blended Long COVID + ME and ME/FM patients to share and join together.

3) Casual ‘hangout’ session (an informal peer to peer session of 90 minutes for everyone living with ME/FM and Long COVID + ME who just want to have ‘coffee’, chat, talk about the week, just as if we were in a coffee shop meeting with friends).



Social Support for people living with ME and/or FM

Advanced registration for each session is required. Registration capped at 20.
