Research Supporter

Help us grow our research programme

To-date the Ménière's Society has invested over £1million to support research. This has led to a greater understanding of vestibular conditions; improved tests to identify and monitor conditions; and better, less destructive, treatments for severe cases. Read more about our research programme and the projects we’ve funded over the last 30 years.

Join the fight against vestibular disorders

Success has consequences and whilst we have been able to support many vital research projects, sadly, the Society’s research reserves are limited and we now receive more valid requests than we have the funds to support. Please help us by making a donation, and encouraging others to donate, so we can continue our important work.

100% of your donation goes to our research fund

If you make a donation direct to the Society and specify it is for research then all of your contribution goes to our research fund to support essential projects.

Here’s how your money could be spent:

  • £10 helps cover the print/postage costs for five surveys
  • £50 could fund a PhD student for a day
  • £100 pays for 2-3 hours of clinical research
  • £500 could pay for essential research consumables

How will I benefit?

As well as your contribution helping us to support more vital research in the field, we’ll also send you an update twice a year to let you know what research we’re funding and how your money is being spent. We’ll also add your name* to our research tree so you can see how you are helping our research fund to grow.

(* you can remain anonymous if you prefer.)

Becoming a research supporter is straightforward
