Support Program

The Support Program provided by the Amanda Young Foundation is aimed at those affected directly by meningococcal disease and their families or significant others. Meningococcal septicaemia and meningitis can have a long term impact, and affects each individual and family differently.

The Support Program is a community of those who have recovered from meningococcal disease who participate in regular social events, and receive regular newsletters, one to one meetings, phone or email contact. The program also supports those who have lost a loved one to meningococcal disease.

The program aims to:

  • Listen – to experiences
  • Connect – with services and other survivors
  • Assist – with the provision of resources and equipment
  • Provide – support with counselling and one-to- one contact
  • Advocate – on behalf of survivors, their carers and families
