Emerge Australia has a small part-time team of paid staff and a wide circle of amazing allies and volunteers. Here are just some of the things we do to improve life for individuals with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS):
- We educate people with the condition, the wider community and healthcare practitioners about ME/CFS.
- We provide information about ways that people with the condition can access various social and financial supports.
- We lobby and advocate to improve the situation in Australia (and internationally) for people with ME/CFS.
- We produce a flagship quarterly journal ‘The Emerge Journal’ which is professionally edited. It includes a mixture of ‘hard science’ updates and member stories from within the community. The Emerge Journal is a key resource for sharing information and engaging our Members.
We are determined to strengthen the national response to ME/CFS. We welcome and encourage all State and Territory organisations, communities and individuals to join with us as we move forward with hope, vigour and a commitment to lead.
We are a member-led organisation and our members are what gives Emerge Australia the impetus, direction and drive to continue our work. By joining (& staying with!) the Society, you will be helping to advance the cause for others with ME/CFS and related neuroimmune conditions. If you are not a member already please do think about signing up for membership here.
