Rest Assured Respite Charitable Trust

We are looking to help primarily those with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS). ME/CFS is an auto immune neuro inflammatory disease which affects every organ in the body and those with it can be severely disabled. The most severely affected lower 25% of sufferers are bedbound or housebound and very ill. There is no cure. Our ultimate aim is to provide a Respite Facility but in the meantime we are working on getting meals to those too unwell to cook and a mentoring programme for the newly diagnosed. There is very little help in the community and many lack support. We also are looking at ways we can increase our income stream through projects that have a community benefit. These will raise awareness, bring financial support to run our programmes and ultimately help us realise our vision of a respite facility.
