Ongoing opportunities

Teenage Carriage Study

Our Teenage Carriage Study is running over 18 months from April 2018, and we are still keen to hear from more volunteers who would be interested in helping to promote the campaign in schools. Read Volunteering News April 2018 or our blog on Teenagers - Join the TEAM for more information.

Student Awareness Campaign 2018

A UK-wide opportunity; we want to spread the message here, there and everywhere! This is well under way and we are now asking for volunteers to see if they can set up an awareness stand at their local university during Meningitis Awareness Week at the end of October. If you would like to get involved, please let us know and we can let you have materials and briefing information.

Become a Community Volunteer
“I am a passionate believer in what Meningitis Now is doing and about helping to spread awareness of this disease. Sometimes it can be very difficult and very emotional too, but it’s worth it. The respect that goes with volunteering helps make life feel positive.” 

Damion - Community Volunteer

“I volunteer in many ways; distributing literature, attending awareness fairs, promoting and assisting with Toddle Waddle events, London Marathon and more. Volunteering is my therapy. I gain so much from it and I always try to be there when I am needed.”
