About Us

ME/CFS Australia Ltd is a non-profit organisation and registered charity that has been functioning at the national level with affiliations from state ME/CFS organisations since 1999.

One of our key goals is to influence national health care decision makers to improve the care and treatment of people with ME/CFS.

ME/CFS Australia is the peak body representing all Australians affected by ME/CFS. Every state and territory ME/CFS association has a Director’s seat on the board open to them to participate in the decision-making of the national body. ME/CFS Australia welcomes and encourages all state organisations to join with us in moving the national agenda forward.

ME/CFS Australia Ltd is a Registered Charity, a Public Benevolent Institution and has registered Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status.

Volunteer Support

Alongside the input by our board members and organisation representatives, ME/CFS Australia also receives support from several other volunteers who are contributing as an extension to their volunteering for state organisations. We have 3 volunteers from WA (ME/CFS and Lyme Association of WA, Inc.) and a handful from SA (ME/CFS South Australia, Inc.). We thank these volunteers for their support and sharing their skills and time with us.
