Safeguarding Statement

If you, or someone you know, are aged 18-25 and have been affected by meningitis, our Believe & Achieve weekend is for you.

Do you want to go on a fun weekend away, relax amongst the scenery of a breathtaking forest and get involved in inclusive activities?

How about have the time to meet up with other people who have been impacted by meningitis and just get where you’re at?

If you answer is yes, then our upcoming B&A weekend is for you! You can meet new people, take time out, make memories and get involved in the activities you enjoy.

We like to keep our groups small to support connections being built and to let everyone’s voice to be heard, so we have 12 spaces available. Express your interest in this amazing event by completing the form below.

“So many memories were made”

Those who have been on our weekends before said,

“Such a good weekend away with Believe & Achieve and Meningitis Now. So many memories were made.” Ollie.

“I’ve had such an amazing weekend with these incredibly lovely people! It’s funny to think that we didn’t know each other 2 days ago but I’ve left this weekend with some amazing friends. I don’t think I’ve ever met such a wonderful, friendly, driven, open and incredible bunch of people. Thank you all!” Freya

More event details

The weekend is free to attend, and we’ll also provide all meals and scheduled activities. If you would like to bring a friend, please note this in the relevant box on the form and we will accommodate your request where possible. They will also need to complete a form. We do not pay transport costs to and from the event, but please let us know if this is an issue for you and we may be able to contribute to your travel costs.

This form is to express your interest. As we have limited spaces priority will be given to those who have not attended one of these weekends before. However still sign up because there may be a space for you, and we will run a wait list too! We will let you know by 29 July 2024 if you have been allocated a place on the weekend.

As this is a weekend event, we have a few more terms and conditions than for our day events. Please read these before you complete the form, as they contain important information regarding non-attendance, transport costs and those you may bring to the weekend with you. Please be aware that you may be required to share a twin room at this event, but we will discuss any requests and thoughts around this in advance.
