About the event

We know that talking to someone who has been in the same situation can be a lifeline for those experiencing the devastating effects of meningitis and septicaemia.

We are looking for people with personal experience of the disease to join our telephone befriending network and help support others going through difficult times.

The training day will include:

  • the role of the befriender,
  • active listening
  • confidentiality and boundaries and how to deal with difficult scenarios.

It is also an opportunity for you to meet others affected by the disease. Lunch is provided and travel expenses can be reimbursed thanks to a grant from Simply Health UK.
