    Just thought other Australians would like to know about a fairly new advocacy website run by a couple of severe ME sufferers from Brisbane.

    I almost missed this, thanks Hixxy.

    Please note that they are listing doctors, psych's, neuros etc for every state so please recommend any good doctors no matter where you are in oz.

    I've emailed them to find out if they are a registered Not for Profit yet as we can nominate them for charity fundraising if they are.

    Check out some of their advocacy work http://www.changeforme.net/page12.php
    Fantastic!

    This could be a good resource. I had thought my post had slipped completely under the radar. Hopefully some others can contact them with suggestions.

    I contacted them to ask if they were registered as a Not-For Profit & this was the reply.

    Anyone know if an Incorporated Association is considered a charity?

    This is a SA govt website, but should be applicable country wide.
