In-person support groups 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!" 2022 schedule so far (please check back as more dates are added): London Saturday 18 June at 11am, central London, email* for more info.
