#MILLIONSMISSING SCOTLAND SEPTEMBER 2022
September 14 @ 12:30 pm – 2:30 pm BST
#MillionsMissing September is nearly here! On Wednesday 14th September, from 12.30-2.30pm, #MEAction Scotland will be outside the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh – if you’re able to join us we would love to see you there!
The Scottish Parliament
Holyrood, Edinburgh, EH99 1SP
This will be a smaller, more focussed action than some of our previous #MillionsMissing events, as our aim is to directly engage politicians, rather than awareness raising with the general public as we have done previously. The government has made many promises about support for people with ME, but there are millions of pounds missing from their current commitments. We will be asking for significant, ring-fenced funding to make real change for people with ME in Scotland.
There will still be speakers, performances and space for people with ME to share their stories, and we’ll have more details in the near future. If you would like to be involved as a speaker or performer at the event, please feel free to reach out to us at [email protected]. The Scottish Parliament have confirmed that anyone attending #MillionsMissing can use the accessible toilets inside the building. Additionally, we will have community guidelines for those opting to participate in-person.
Of course, we know that many of you won’t be able to join us in person and, as always, you will be there with us in spirit. We’re planning a live stream of the event for you to watch along, as well as sharing shorter clips that will be easy for you to share on your own social media. Once the parliament is back in session, we’ll be putting out a call to ask your MSP to join us on the day – so keep an eye out for that.
We hope you’re as excited as we are to come together again to demand more for people with ME in Scotland.
