The largest meningitis organisation in the world, Meningitis Now is a bold, brave and influential charity making a real difference in the UK. With our beneficiaries and supporters at the heart of everything we do, our vision is simple – a future where no lives are lost to meningitis in the UK and everyone affected gets the support they need to rebuild their lives.

To achieve this, we have to provide the support that people need, when and where they need it, and to ensure effective education of the general public, health professionals and other people who are involved in any way with meningitis or people affected by it. We also need to increase the capacity of the organisation through the effective development & management of volunteers.

Big Lottery: Reaching Communities funding has been awarded to Meningitis Now to establish and deliver a new support programme called Believe & Achieve.

The programme will focus on helping young people aged 14-25 with a meningitis experience to overcome barriers to success, boosting their skills and confidence and enabling them to enjoy the same opportunities as any other young person.

We are looking for a competent Programme Co-ordinator to scope and successfully implement the delivery of the programme for young people into our existing support offer and to provide day-to-day control of all strands of the project.

If you think you have the skills to fulfil this exciting role in the UK’s leading meningitis charity and would like more information please see the full job description.
