Advice & Support
Our major goal is to offer support for people whose lives are affected by epilepsy, giving people the opportunity to get together, socialise and discuss the issues that matter to them.
Get involved, become a member and you can really make a difference.
Coming Soon - NEW Online Support Groups
The online support groups will be an accessible alternative to compliment the face to face self help and support groups.
They will offer a comfortable and supportive environment for discussion between people affected by epilepsy, or between carers, family and friends.
Get together, socialise and discuss the issues that matter to you.
Health & Treatment
We will keep you up-to-date with all the latest news and information and epilepsy advice.
