Babies and young children are most at risk from meningitis and septicaemia - almost half of all cases are in the under fives.
Every year we send thousands of posters and leaflets to parents and other carers of young children throughout the UK and Ireland. This ensures that life-saving information is easily to hand.
The charity also gives awareness talks, and offers in-depth support following cases of meningitis and septicaemia amongst nursery and school children.
By becoming part of our team you will be helping to bring a world free from meningitis and septicaemia a step closer.
and septicaemia are devastating diseases which can kill or disable in
hours. Although anyone of any age can get the diseases, babies, children
and young adults are most at risk.
Your contribution will enable
us to fund research into the prevention, detection and treatment of
meningitis and septicaemia, provide life-saving awareness information
and support people who have lost a loved one or are coping with after
effects, like Tilly and Sarah.
