This online support event is for people who have had meningitis or are caring for someone who has and who are interested in finding out what benefits they may be able to claim and how to go about this.

  • Date: Monday 26th February 2024
  • Time: 10.15-11.30am

This online support event is for people who have had meningitis or are caring for someone who has and who are interested in finding out what benefits they may be able to claim and how to go about this.

Many people miss out on the financial assistance that is available. The claiming process and the knowledge needed to decipher it can be complicated and inaccessible. We know this is especially difficult for those impacted by meningitis who are already managing medical appointments, lack of after-care and support as well as the added impact of the cost-of-living crisis. Through this event you will have the opportunity to find out what benefits you might be entitled to, the key words professionals may use, what happens when you’re expected to return to work and the appeal process.

It will be hosted by Becky Hartwell, Support Services Manager, and other staff from the Meningitis Now support team, with a talk and contributions from Jane and Stephen from Paladin Group. Jane Nelson is a Welfare Benefit Adviser. Stephen Farnfield is a director of Paladin Group, Expert Witness and Specialist Financial Planner. We will also be joined by Claire Leslie, a Legal Director at Enable Law, a specialist medical negligence, personal injury and mental capacity law firm and one of Meningitis Now’s corporate law partners.

Make sure you book quickly as spaces will be limited.
