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

As we start 2021, we are continuing to live under restrictions that do not allow us to currently confirm our Family Day plans.

Moving forwards, we hope to hold a Family Day event in the autumn but, as many people attending have underlying health conditions, the risks associated with a new event will need to be carefully considered. If you would like to not your interest in our next event then please register and we will be in touch once a new date is arranged.

We thank you for your continuing patience and understanding and look forward to offering this much-loved event as soon as is safe to do so.

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.
