The Amanda Young Foundation is a non-profit community organisation dedicated to reducing deaths in WA from meningococcal disease. The Foundation was formed in 1998 following the tragic death of Amanda Young from meningococcal septicaemia at the tender age of 18 years.


The Foundation achieves its mission through:



  • Meningococcal awareness and education - the community, schools and medical profession;
  • Funding relevant medical research;
  • Young Leaders' Summit - an annual camp for year 11 school students across WA to support and encourage the development of leadership skills;
  • Meningococcal survivor support - support for survivors and their families
