A leading UK and international meningitis charity that brings together people and expertise to defeat meningitis and septicaemia wherever it exists.


At Meningitis Research Foundation we are driven by our supporters and beneficiaries, many of whom have first-hand experience of the devastating consequences of the disease.


That’s why our vision is a world free from meningitis and septicaemia. A world with access to effective disease prevention. A world where people who do get the disease get the best diagnosis and treatments possible. A world where people affected and their families get the vital support and information they need.


We fund research into the detection, treatment and prevention of meningitis. We provide information for at-risk groups and health professionals and we give support to people affected. We also ensure that evidence delivers the best results – whether it is changing government policy or improving health services.  Death and disability from meningitis in the UK has reduced greatly since MRF was founded in 1989 and we are expanding our work into the developing world.
