Share your meningitis story

Meningitis can happen anywhere, anytime to anyone.

Every year many individuals, families and communities share their experience of meningitis and septicaemia with us, so others can understand the devastating impact it has. Through telling people's stories we can continue to raise awareness globally and drive the change needed to save lives. 

If you have an experience you would like to share, please use this form to send us your story.  

Once we receive your form, we will add your story to our Book of Experience, which educates and informs people all over the world on what it is like to be affected by meningitis and septicaemia.  

To defeat meningitis, it’s important that we reach as many people as possible. To help us to do this, stories featured in the Book of Experience will be shared in a variety of ways.

If you have any questions about completing this form, please contact our Support Services team at
