fighting meningococcal disease   |   Support, Awareness and Reducing deaths in WA from meningococcal disease


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. Barry and Lorraine Young have been outstanding supporters of research in WA, having supported multiple projects both at UWA’s Marshall Center for Infectious Diseases and the Telethon Kids Institute.
