MRF Dublin, Belfast and Scotland Offices

Meningitis Research Foundation (MRF) has decided to close the Belfast, Edinburgh and Dublin offices.

The decisions have been taken so that we can make the biggest and most effective impact from our available resources. Our mission to defeat meningitis in the UK, Ireland and around the world continues from our Head Office in Bristol.

MRF will always deliver services that are of best value for our donors and beneficiaries. As more support is now provided digitally than by any other means, this move will allow us to reduce property costs while still supporting people wherever they are based.

Continuing our work in the UK and Ireland

Meningitis Research Foundation will continue to raise awareness and provide support to people and families affected by meningitis throughout the UK and Ireland after these changes have taken place. This will be supported by our experienced and dedicated team working from our Bristol office who staff our helpline and routinely travel to meet people wherever they need us. We will also continue to provide supporter events and direct support across the UK and Ireland.

You can get in touch with our support team via our Helpline on UK 080 8800 3344 or Ireland 1800 41 33 44, alternatively you can email  or use our websites live chat feature.

This website with invaluable information for families, members, supporters, researchers and health professionals continues to be available to anyone, anywhere, at any time .

Supporting our dedicated fundraisers

We are very grateful to all of our amazing fundraisers throughout UK and Ireland and will continue to support them with their fundraising efforts. Our award-winning fundraising team in Bristol will offer advice, support, fundraising resources and opportunities to get involved to all those wanting the raise funds. If you would like to get in touch please email or call 0333 4056 241.

MRF is extremely grateful to everyone who has worked in these office for the support they have given to individuals and families and for their hard work. The Belfast, Edinburgh and Dublin offices will be open until the 22nd November. If you have any questions please email
