Important announcement regarding our merger with ME Trust

On 17 September 2021, the ME Trust board announced a decision to merge with Action for ME after a thorough review of the benefits to people with ME started in June, and after consulting with key stakeholders of both charities. We had anticipated merging both charities in late November/early December.

We have now been informed that our application will not be processed within the 12 week timescale originally stipulated by the CQC (Care Quality Commission). We have jointly agreed that delaying the merger until January should allow time for our application to be processed and registration secured.

Both the ME Trust and Action for ME boards remain committed to merging our charities in order to enhance the services and support available to people with ME. We now anticipate the two charities merging and launching our combined service offer in January 2022. We will continue to keep our website updated with further information about the merger including timescales.
