Meningitis meet ups
In 2019 we have been piloting our Meningitis Meet Ups programme.
Meet Ups were introduced to provide a hosted, informal, open and safe meeting place for all those with personal experience of meningitis and septicaemia.
These meetings were designed for people to meet each other, build links with peers and access information from staff at Meningitis Research Foundation through centrally located meetings across the UK and Ireland. We hoped that they would help to reduce feelings of isolation, highlight our support services and enable us to sustain relationships with our members and others affected by this disease.
To date we have hosted 14 meet ups across the UK and Ireland meeting with nearly 40 people. We also supported an Ambassador for the charity to host a meningitis meet up.
- 100% of people who attended, advised their overall impression of the meet up was good or excellent
- 100% of people agreed or strongly agreed that the meningitis meet up helped them feel, more informed, more supported and less alone.
