MRF Membership and Support Officer

Hi, I'm Henry and I joined Meningitis Research Foundation in 2013.

My role here is immensely varied; from speaking to people on the helpline and providing information and support to people in need, to giving awareness raising talks to community groups or supporting volunteers to raise awareness within their communities - I do a little bit of everything!

I also manage our Community Ambassador programme which aims to broaden our regional representation through a network of committed volunteers.

I love my job, especially when I'm out and about, meeting our amazing members. I can honestly say that my job has introduced me to some of the bravest, kindest and most inspirational people that I've ever met.
