Gilley is the mascot of the Encephalitis Society and has been ever since his appearance in Gilley the Giraffe… who Changed.

The book was written by a mum of a child recovering from encephalitis (inflammation of the brain) who wanted a way to simply explain the condition to his brothers and sisters.

Since its publication, we have made it our mission to send out a Gilley toy and book to comfort any children who are affected directly or indirectly by encephalitis. 

Help us to continue this very important part of our work by buying your own Gilley.
