Meningitis-Now-LogoMeningitis Now

We are Meningitis Now. A new charity with almost 30 years’ experience.

Formed in 2013 by bringing together Meningitis UK and Meningitis Trust, founders of the meningitis movement in the UK – we exist to save lives and rebuild futures by funding research, raising awareness and providing support.

At Meningitis Now, we put people at the heart of everything we do. We are bold and brave, driving towards our vision with energy, commitment and determination.

The people we help every day and the people who support us in return – people like you – are our inspiration and will continue to shape our work in the future.

We need your help now more than ever to make a difference to people in the UK – people who are at risk from meningitis and those whose lives have already been changed forever because of it.
