We fund counselling, wheelchairs, speech therapy, specialist equipment and more. But we can't without donations. Please help.
The last year has shown us what we can achieve and, most importantly, what a difference we make to people whose lives have been turned upside down by meningitis.
During 2011/2012 we saw a further increase in demand for our support, with home and hospital visits increasing by 24% and the highest level yet of financial grants, awarding £250,000 – an increase of over 21% - to 185 individuals and their families – an increase of 23% on the previous year.
We are reaching more people who can benefit from our support, and although with your help we raised £3 million during the year, raising the funds we need remains a challenge.
For us, it’s not about doing what we do because we can. It’s about making sure that no-one affected by meningitis is left to suffer alone. Because we are here, victims and their families will always have a place to turn and a voice that will raise issues and fight meningitis on their behalf.

We also have annual statutory accounts for the Trust, compliant with the current statutory requirements, the memorandum and articles of association and the Statement of Recommended Practice – Accounting and Reporting by Charities (SORP 2005).
It costs £8,000 a day to provide our services. To help us continue please support us. Support the Meningitis Trust
