Team Encephalitis Support Volunteers are people who have personal experience of encephalitis, either directly affected or as a family member/carer or friend. They have completed the Society's Support Volunteer Training which includes a DBS check and Safeguarding training, to provide information and a listening ear to people affected by encephalitis and their families.

If you would like to get in touch with one of our Support Volunteers please contact Laura, Volunteer Manager -[email protected]
