Join OMEGA today

OMEGA is the Oxfordshire Myalgic Encephalomyelitis Group for Action. We are a self-help group for people with ME or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and their carers.

Members can benefit from contact with other people who recognise and understand the illness. Members give each other friendship and support, exchange information about treatments, and learn from each other about the management of this long-term illness.

OMEGA Meetings in April 2017
The local social groups are such a great way to meet and talk and to welcome new members. They are smaller and easier for many of us to manage than the big meetings with a speaker..

Of course we very aware that a lot of our members are not well enough to attend and hope this invitation is not too upsetting. We also welcome carers and family members
