Balance Awareness Week
When is it?
Balance Awareness Week is 15-21 September 2019
What's it all about?
Balance Awareness Week (BAW) takes place annually in September. We encourage members, supporters, health professionals, in fact, anyone with an interest in vestibular disorders, to take part. The Ménière’s Society will be running various events as well as encouraging supporters to come up with their own ideas. Whether it’s a coffee morning, bucket collection, manning an information stand, or jumping out of a plane (with a parachute of course!) – we’ll appreciate anything you can do to raise awareness and/or funds.
Why should I get involved?
The Ménière’s Society is the only registered charity in the UK dedicated solely to supporting people with vestibular (inner ear) disorders causing dizziness & imbalance. We receive no government funding & rely solely on fundraising & memberships to fund our vital work. Support us by becoming a member or making a donation to our work.
Where does it take place?
Worldwide! We’ll be working alongside the other charities, such as the Dutch Commissie Ménière (NVVS), ASMES in Spain and the Vestibular Disorders Association (VEDA) in the US, as part of a global effort to raise awareness and defeat dizziness.

“I find it very frustrating that not many people know about Ménière's and the effects it has on a person. I would love to see this change so sufferers gain a better understanding from friends, family and work colleagues”
