Description

Formerly Meningitis Trust, Meningitis Now is here to help you, when you need us and for as long as you need us. We offer support for all those living with the impact of the disease. We support individuals, and their families, including those who have been bereaved, helping to rebuild lives after meningitis and septicaemia.
We offer emotional support and advice, including a free nurse-led helpline available 9am-5pm 5 days a week, peer support and counselling, home visits, a range of creative therapies; art, music and play, and our popular family days.

Meningitis Now is also committed to raising vital awareness of meningitis and its signs and symptoms through a range of literature, fundraising activities, and our community team and dedicated network of supporters and volunteers working on the ground.
