The Motivational Empowerment Group for ME/CFS has created a environment where we communicate and share our strengths and look at the things we can and do achieve. We have the opportunity to make new friends and acquaintances with people we may never have met due to our restrictions and social limitations.

This certainly helps us all to grow and nurtures self-confidence and trust because we all help to empower each other by just being a part of the group. MEG meets fortnightly on a Wednesday – Golborne Library, Tanners lane, Golborne, Warington, WA3 3AW – most meetings are informal get-together’s where we chat and catch up on each other’s news.

Fellow sufferers are welcome and we hope to have some activities planned for the coming new year. There are always refreshments available, tea/coffee, etc.
