    Yes. They are...not great.

    They receive government funding for staffing but only do support not advocacy. The support is only for mild and moderate people who can attend meetings. They can’t help with suggesting a GP or local services.

    I met with local government to suggest their funding go to Emerge in Victoria to better support people here in Canberra.

    The previous president had an excellent understanding but the current ACT ME/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome President uses only ‘chronic fatigue’. This is a problem in media interviews.
