The Encephalitis Society logo

The Encephalitis Society is an international charity and one of the world's leading resources dedicated to supporting adults and children affected by encephalitis. Broadly speaking our work involves: supporting adults, children, their families and carers and professionals involved in their care, producing evidence-based and accredited information about encephalitis and acquired brain injury that may follow, raising awareness about encephalitis, its consequences and the need for improved services and conducting research and working in partnership with other researchers.
