#MEAction UK Parliament Project

<< Return to #MEAction UK home

#MEAction UK’s Parliament project supports a team of dedicated parliamentary outreach volunteers and mobilises our UK network of constituents to educate our MPs about ME with the ultimate goal of increasing research funding and medical care.

How to get involved

To get more involved with Parliament outreach, contact uk@meaction.net. You can also join a local Facebook group.

Current Parliament calls to action
UK Parliamentary Advocacy Contact your MP. #MEAction has developed a toolkit to give you the basic tools to help you to feel comfortable meeting with your Member of Parliament (MP). We want every single MP in the country to meet with a constituent, to learn how their life has been affected by ME and find out what they can do to help. Access the toolkit now.
Urge your MP to sign EDM 1247 recognizing Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) Awareness Week, the work being done by campaigners and charities to highlight ME as a physical condition, and acknowledging the detrimental effects of the PACE trial. Contact your MP now

Follow-up Form

Have you contacted your MP? Did you hear back from them? Please fill out this form to tell us about it. The information you provide will help us improve our overall strategy. If you have questions you can contact uk@meaction.net.
