About the Rebuilding Futures Fund
The programme consists of four separate areas – Health & Wellbeing, Opportunities, Bereavement and Specialist Equipment. Each area provides funding towards different types of support, but they are all designed to help people rebuild their futures with hope and confidence.
Meningitis doesn’t discriminate based on where you live, what you do or how old you are – and neither do we. Support via the Rebuilding Futures Fund is available to anyone living in the UK who has been affected by meningitis. We’re not about quick fixes; we’re here to provide tailored support with long-term impact, that will really help people rebuild their lives after meningitis.
Meningitis Now is proud to provide this unique, life-changing support – the only meningitis organisation to do so in the UK.
