Throughout 2020 and the lockdowns due to COVID-19, the Encephalitis Society held virtual meetings for members as a fun way to come together in self-isolation.

Feedback from attendees showed that the community love having a place to gather every week to share stories and experiences, no matter where they are from in the world. From 2021 we are continuing to host a weekly meeting with one of the support team as part of our regular offering, and are hosting an additional meeting for specific parts of the community once a month.

2021 meeting schedule:

Every Thursday 4-5pm (GMT) – weekly gathering, open to all (with a member of the support team), starting Thursday 7th January, 2021

Last Wednesday of each month, 6-7pm (GMT) specific groups as advertised below (with a member of the support team, and volunteer with relevant experiences):

  • Wednesday January 27th 6-7pm (GMT) for people affected by encephalitis
  • Wednesday February 24th 6-7pm (GMT) for 18s and under, affected by encephalitis
  • Wednesday March 31st 6-7pm (GMT) for family members, carers and support networks

Further Wednesday groups will be advertised here and on our social media channels later in the year.

We hold meetings via Zoom, a video chat website.
