Every day the UK sees as many as 20 cases of meningitis. These lives get turned upside down in an instant.
We are the only charity that does what we do and by supporting us you have our word that we will support each and every one of those people who need us.
Meningitis is a disease which can strike quickly and kill within hours, leaving thousands of people to face a future without a loved one. Every year around 3,200 cases of bacterial meningitis are reported in the UK – leaving one in ten dead and a third of those who survive with severe after-effects.
Meningitis Now supports people as they face life after meningitis, providing them with the widest range of free services and community-based support. These services offer emotional, practical and financial support. We are the only organisation in the UK that is focused on support after meningitis; but we are also dedicated to raising awareness of the disease and funding research into its long-term impact and vaccines to prevent it.
Without your support, we would not exist. Meningitis Now relies on voluntary donations to continue our work, needing to raise more than £10,000 every day – over £3.5 million a year.
