International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

UK: Is there a big ESA campaign we can join?

    Sasha Fine, thank you

    Having just been assigned by DWP's random outcome generator to the work-related activity ESA group when I don't have enough energy to feed myself when I get hungry, I'm looking for some big, fat campaign against the poor implementation of ESA that I can sign up to.

    I've already signed the occasional petition and whatnot and lots of organisations seem to be doing their own thing but is there some big, serious, trans-charity campaign going on that is capable of racking up numbers and influence?

    I'm particularly interested in the issue of people being inaccurately assessed (many campaigns have a whole lot of other issues but this has been a recurring problem for me during my ME life).

    I'm also interested in writing to my MP about my experience in such a way as to get the biggest benefit for everyone - again, is there some big MP-writing ESA campaign going on or do I just have to write my own letter?
