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 our North and Northern Ireland 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.
If you have already registered, you will hear from our team in due course. Please continue to register if you are interested in joining these events when they are rescheduled. Registration will remain open for Northern Ireland, and a waiting list is still in place for our fully booked North event.
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.
Find a Family Day near you
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.
