New toolkit on how to meet via Skype
Action for M.E. has published a toolkit describing how people with M.E can meet using the online communication system Skype to share support and information with each other.
Action for M.E. received funds from the Health and Social Care Alliance (previously known as Long Term Conditions Alliance Scotland) to set up a pilot in Scotland exploring how Skype could be used to enable people who are housebound with M.E., or have no local group near them, to gain support from others with the condition.
Using Skype means members of the group can see and hear each through their computer from their own home.
The new toolkit describes how to go about setting up similar groups.
Jan O’Malley, who has M.E. and takes part in the Highland group, said: "Being able to use Skype to talk to others who really understand what it is like to live with M.E. makes me feel much less isolated."
