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 ME Awareness May 2017

We will be again following the ME Association’s lead and “Going blue for ME” by wearing blue and/or our blue ribbons for ME Awareness and inviting friends and family and potential new members who wish to know more about ME to our social/support groups.

As well as our usual groups we will also hosting an afternoon tea for all OMEGA members well enough to come and for children, young people and their parents, in Sandford- on-Thames (Details below)
