Family Days

Family Days are all about families having fun, relaxing and spending time together. Held at family-friendly venues across the UK, these days out are free for families who have a personal experience of meningitis and have children up to 16 years of age

Meningitis Now Support Event 2020 LB - Family Day v2

Whether you spend the day at the zoo, a castle, a museum or a wildlife park, Family Days give children the chance to be children. And give parents the chance to meet other families who understand how tough life after meningitis can be.

Important information regarding coronavirus

Due to the current events unfolding with coronavirus guidance, we have made the decision to postpone or cancel our 2020 Family Days. As some people who attend have underlying health conditions, and to ensure the health and safety of all our staff and valued supporters, we want to reduce any further risks of illness at this time.

We hope to hold Family Days again as soon as possible and would ask you to register your interest below if you are interested in joining us when they are rescheduled. Anyone registered on an event that has been postponed will be contacted again once a new date has been arranged.

We thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to adapt our services to ensure that we adhere to current guidance and seek alternative dates to deliver these much-loved events.

Family Days are free to attend and include:

  • Entrance to the venue and activities included within the Meningitis Now Family Day programme
  • Refreshments throughout the day, including a buffet lunch
  • Access to Meningitis Now staff and often representatives from other relevant charities

Unfortunately, we can’t help with:

  • Travel cost of getting to and from the venue
  • Personal expenditure spent within the venue e.g. on-site shop
  • Any other personal costs

What we ask of you

Our Family Days are generously funded by BBC Children in Need. Without this funding we would not be able to hold support events for families. When you register for a Family Day, please ensure you are committed to attend so that all available funded places are filled. Please let us know as soon as possible if you can’t attend, so we can offer your place to another family.
