If you or a loved one have had sepsis, join us at one of our sepsis support groups. They are relaxed informal meetings and work on a model of peer support. This involves people drawing on shared personal experience to provide knowledge, social interaction, emotional assistance and practical help to each other, in a way that is mutually beneficial.
In light of COVID-19 we have been working to find a suitable replacement for our face to face sepsis support groups. An online platform called Zoom provides us with an opportunity to connect people affected by sepsis remotely and regardless of location or physical ability. If you don’t know what Zoom is or how to use it, don’t worry, there is lots of useful information on their website. Including how to join a meeting here.
If you would like to join one of our virtual groups could you, please fill in this online form so we can organise the groups most effectively.
The current situation has enforced a temporary suspension of all our face to face support groups. We will however reschedule our groups as soon as official guidance allows.
Below is a list of our previously established groups and their location.
Oxfordshire and Berkshire
South East Essex
Coventry and Warwickshire
North Cheshire and Merseyside
North Lincolnshire & Goole
