From local support groups to a national charity, Meningitis Now is proud of everything they have achieved in their 30 years history. Meningitis Now was the first meningitis patient group in the world, founders of the meningitis movement and is the only charity dedicated to fighting meningitis in the UK.

The charity also offers vital support and help to those who have experienced meningitis, helping them to rebuild their lives.

Our Brief

Recognising the inequalities that exists in the UK health system and that life-saving vaccine uptake and access to information was poorest in communities where language, cultural and health barriers exist, Meningitis Now wanted to ensure that it provided the widest possible access to the valuable information and support services it provides. Making its website barrier-free, accessible and inclusive is a vital part of this goal.

Client Testimonial

"We are deeply aware of the inequalities that exist in our healthcare system in the UK and the fact that lifesaving vaccine uptake is lower in communities where language, economic and cultural differences exist. We believe everyone should be able to access our information and services barrier-free and Recite simply helps us deliver this in a way that is straight forward for the user and, for a charity that doesn’t receive government funding, in a cost-effective manner.
