We fund counselling, wheelchairs, speech therapy, specialist equipment and more. But we can't without donations. Please help.
As the oldest meningitis charity in the world, our unparalleled range of professional services and community support has been developed using our extensive knowledge of the devastating impact of this disease.
Very often life is never the same after meningitis strikes; for the individual or their family. The Meningitis Trust gives them the strength to rebuild their lives through our unique range of free services and our local support network. Once meningitis strikes, we cannot change what has happened but we give them ways of taking control of their lives once again.
With vaccines the only form of prevention of meningitis, we actively support safe and effective vaccines, and work to ensure the early introduction of vaccines as they are available. But there will never be vaccines for all forms of meningitis and people must remain vigilant.
Since the Meningitis Trust started in 1986, millions of people have been helped. Just think for a minute – if the Meningitis Trust had not been here for people:
Our helpline is available 24/7 to offer advice and answer your meningitis questions.
Our Community team are based across the country, they can help with home visits and other support.
More than 5.3 million adults in the UK can't name a single meningitis sign or symptom. Make sure you're not one of them.
