The death of someone close from meningitis or meningococcal septicaemia can be traumatic, distressing and painful. You may have lots of questions about what has happened and what to expect in the weeks and months ahead

Bereavement LB

We can help you 

Although we can’t change what has happened we can help and support you and those closest to you during the difficult and painful times. We can make you a priority; we have no waiting lists and can support you as individuals (adults, children and young people) and families. Take a look at the support we offer.

We also have a closed and moderated bereavement support Facebook group.
