MRF Head of Helpline and Membership
Hi, I'm Shirley and I lead a team of dedicated staff and nurses working within the 24 hour Helpline
My work with Members and individuals who have personal experience of meningitis and septicaemia includes home visits
, the telephone befriending network
, giving talks to health professionals and community groups, running Members' days
and linking with other agencies and charities dealing with neurological and physical disabilities.
I feel privileged to support people affected by these diseases through times of extreme crisis, sharing their experiences and working with them through life changing trauma.
