MRF Membership and Support Officer

Hi. My name is Henry and I’ve recently joined Meningitis Research Foundation as Membership and Support Officer. Though not a scientist, medical research has long been an interest of mine and I’m really excited to be working for such a successful and forward thinking charity.

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’ll be doing a little bit of everything! I look forward to working closely with our members to help spread awareness of the potentially devastating effects of meningitis and septicaemia.

In my spare time I enjoy reading old books and playing piano and guitar, though not simultaneously!
