Support groups

If you have been affected by sepsis in any way, you are welcome to join us at one of our support groups.

ONLINE SUPPORT GROUPS

Our online groups are relaxed informal meetings via Zoom and are facilitated by our support nurses.  They work on a model of peer support which involves people drawing on shared personal experience to provide knowledge, social interaction, emotional assistance or practical help to each other, often in a way that is mutually beneficial.

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.

Below is a list of our monthly groups which includes groups for people recovering from sepsis, friends and family members of those recovering and for people who are bereaved as a result of sepsis.

If you would like to join one of the groups below, please fill in this online form and indicate which group you’d like to join.  One of the team will then be in touch with the link to join the group.
