    A young woman with ME has started UK Parliamentary petition seeking training in relation to ME for teachers:

    https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/266152

    It can be signed by any UK resident or UK citizens including those living overseas.

    Though this petition could be more clearly specified I think it is important to support young people with ME actively involved in campaigning. Certainly action needs taking to meet the needs of young people with ME in education.

    So people able to sign the petition please consider it.

    It’s ok as petitions go. I particularly appreciate that they haven’t written pages of stuff like you see with some ME petitions.

    Being a parliamentary petition, and having to give your name and postcode, I assume it does an automated check against the electoral register. Maybe sometimes it doesn't quite match.

    Did you check your junk email folder? That’s where I found my confirmation email.
