A warm welcome to the North Kent ME and Fibro Family website.
Established in March 2017, the group was set up to support all those living with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.) and Fibromyalgia in the North Kent and Medway area.
Sadly, as yet there is no cure for these chronic conditions, so our aim is to fully support sufferers by networking with each other and sharing information, both medical and alternative therapies. We have over 100 members with many who are happy to share their stories and experiences. We also hope to be able to reach out to those who are house bound and may feel isolated by their health problems, making them feel part of a group of people who can empathise and assure them that they are not fighting alone.
We have a number of goals but the number one goal is to make a positive impact on those dealing with either M.E. or Fibromyalgia.
We have monthly meetings, socials, trips away as well as invited guest speakers. Most of the event details are kept on this site and are updated regularly.
We are very much interested in networking with other support groups. We have contacted a number of local groups and so far most have been very open to this. This will open up help to those in areas too far for us to reach. We are stronger in numbers so we fully give our support to fellow support groups.
We hope you enjoy the site and that it will benefit sufferers and help educate the families of those with M.E. or Fibromyalgia.
