Disability rights and benefits
If you have experienced meningitis and/or septicaemia your life may have changed forever. If you are living with the after effects, or caring for someone affected, you may have to deal with any number of physical and mental disabilities. The after effects of meningitis and septicaemia can have an impact on your whole family, not just the person who had it. Adapting to this life change may be emotionally, physically and financially exhausting.
The needs of those living with the after effects of meningitis and septicaemia in the UK and Ireland are now uniquely addressed in our new Disability Rights and Benefits website.
The site features a quick tailor-made online assessment
which allows the charity’s specialist helpline team to guide users
through what can be a bewildering process.
