When your family is affected by meningitis, it can be very isolating. You will likely have hundreds of questions, and may not know where to turn for answers. Our Support team can provide excellent and comprehensive support, but we know there's rarely anything more helpful than meeting people who have been through the same thing as you.
Our Pushing the Boundaries: Life After Limb Loss
events were set up to bring families with children impacted by limb loss after meningitis together, along with industry experts and leading scientists, to help people impacted by meningitis feel less alone. The COVID-19 pandemic forced the cancellation of our 2020 planned event
, but we were determined to ensure people affected by meningitis should not feel even more isolated.
Thanks to generous support from the National Lottery Community Fund, we have been able to run a series of 'virtual' Pushing the Boundaries events in 2021. Free to all, we invited world-leading professors and doctors, as well as people impacted by meningitis themselves, to share their knowledge.
