Do you want to go on an activity-packed weekend away in a relaxing space?

How about having the time to meet up with other people who have been impacted by meningitis, who get where you're at, or go to a place where you can be yourself? Maybe you've been interested in a Weekend before, but you didn't want to come without a parent or carer.

Our fun B&A Weekend is for 12 people aged 18-25; you can meet new people, take time out, make memories and get involved in the activities you enjoy.

The Weekend is free to attend, and we’ll also provide all the meals and pay for scheduled activities. If you would like to bring a friend, parent or carer please note this in the relevant box on the form below and we will accommodate your request where possible. They will also need to complete a form. 


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 and inspirational 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


The form below is to express your interest. As we have limited spaces, priority will be given to those who haven’t attended one of these Weekends before. However, still sign up because there may be a space for you! We will let you know by 1 March if you have been accepted on to the Weekend.

As this is a weekend event, we have 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. We will be having another weekend later in the year for those who don’t want a parent to come along.
