Our Organisation

MECFS Canterbury was established in 1985 to support and assist people with ME/CFS in the management of this debilitating illness and with the aim of improving their quality of life.   

M.E. /CFS GROUP (CANTERBURY) INC is a Society under the Incorporated Societies Act 1908 and is registered as a charity (CC32072). We trade under the name MECFS Canterbury.

We have grown over the years to become a professional community health and clinical service organisation, providing a range of services and supports for our community. Visit the How we help page to find out more.


We serve people in the Canterbury - Waitaha and West Coast - Te Tai Poutini regions in the South Island - Te Waipounamu of Aotearoa New Zealand. These regions include thirteen District Councils.  

We also support students at the Southern Regional Health School, who may live in any region of the South Island.
