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.

FACE TO FACE SUPPORT GROUPS

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.

For more information about either type of our support groups please call our support team free on 0808 800 0029 or send us an email enquiry here.

SEPSIS FORUM

The UK Sepsis Trust forum is now closed. If you have contributed to the forum, we thank you for your valued contribution and support. We are currently reviewing this space and hope to develop an online platform at some point in the future.

FACEBOOK GROUP

The official group of the UK Sepsis Trust includes news and information. You can also message the Trust and ask questions.

Some people find closed Facebook groups a useful way to connect with others that have been affected by sepsis. Such groups may include Simply Sepsis and Sepsis Warriors.  The UKST do not moderate these pages so we are unable to accept any responsibility for their content.
