Affecting over 6,000 people a year in the UK alone

How we help

Personally support families going through Encephalitis

Raise awareness

Fund research into causes, diagnoses & treatments

Fund training for those involved with the ongoing care and rehabilitation of children with life changing Acquired Brain Injuries

Matty’s story

“Encephalitis is still so unheard of by so many people, yet it is just as life threatening as, if not more than, meningitis… The support from people who have been there, The Eden Dora Trust  for children with Encephalitis, is genuinely invaluable. It’s not a faceless charity, you know their knowledge is first-hand, and it means the world to know that there are people there for you.” Matty’s Mum
