Discovery Days

If you are a Member of the Foundation, we offer you a unique opportunity to see behind the scenes at one of our research projects by taking part in our programme of research Discovery Days.

Discovery Days

Visits and days like these are used by many organisations, including the NHS and other charitable and grant giving organisations. The idea is to involve fundraisers and people who have been impacted by the disease in the research by the most direct means - going to see the work itself.

We hope that meeting the researchers and hearing about the valuable work being done to combat meningitis and septicaemia will be a valuable experience for both our members and the scientists. For those who have ever helped fundraise it will be a way to see how your money has been spent.
