AYME and AfME Merger – March

Action for ME has just announced the launch of it’s new Children’s Services Team. Following mutual agreement with the Board of Trustees of the Association of Young People with ME (AYME), the new team will launch on Monday 3 April, when AYME will cease operating.

The Boards of Trustees of both charities have decided to take this course of action because they wholeheartedly believe that it will benefit children, young people, adults and families affected by ME. AYME’s Chief Executive Mary-Jane Willows will take up the position of Head of Children’s Services with AfME, and AfME are undertaking consultation with AYME staff regarding their transfer to the new team.
