A number of our Support Volunteers hold in-person support groups in their local area in the UK and Ireland.

This is a great chance to meet like-minded people who have experienced encephalitis directly or indirectly. We aim to keep these meet-ups accessible, friendly, supportive and safe.

Feedback from one of our meet-ups: 

"To be in a room where absolutely everyone understood what I’d been through and I could understand them. That was so special!"
