Shirley Gieron

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 and Membership department.

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.
