Balance Awareness Week (BAW) takes place annually in September. This year it's being held from 19-25 September 2021.
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 running a marathon – 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 other organisations as part of a global effort to raise awareness and defeat dizziness.
