About Hope 4 ME & Fibro Northern Ireland

Hope 4 ME & Fibro NI is a registered charity run entirely by patient volunteers.


  • Monthly support meetings on the first Tuesday of each month in the Mourne Country Hotel, Newry, at 7pm with regular guest speakers.
  • Annual Conferences featuring international researchers and leading experts. These events help medical professionals and healthcare decision makers to access the best current knowledge and understanding.
  • Lobbying for Specialist Biomedical Care. At present there is no consultant led clinic for ME in Northern Ireland, and provision for fibromyalgia is erratic. Hope 4 ME & Fibro NI demand:
    • a proper consultant physician led clinic that offers both expert diagnosis and best clinical care.
    • that any therapy-based provision led by non-clinical staff can only be used in support of the above consultant led clinic. It cannot be a replacement.
  • Fundraising. Funds raised are used to support the above activities and are also donated to selected biomedical research projects as finances allow.
