helpline 01494 601 400

More than half a million people in the UK have epilepsy

We set out to make a difference to every person affected by epilepsy whatever their background, however seriously it affects them, and whether they have the condition themselves or are close to someone with epilepsy. We remain the only UK epilepsy charity to deliver a full programme of epilepsy medical research and we continue to provide medical care, residential care and information services to people affected by epilepsy.

With your help, we can carry on supporting people with epilepsy

Only through fundraising support can we transform the lives of people with epilepsy through our services. £17 means someone with epilepsy can talk to a helpline operator. £100 could help fund a DNA test, enabling our scientists to unlock the secrets of epilepsy. With your help we can ensure everyone has the best possible chance at accurate diagnosis, treatment and personal support.

Your fundraising can transform someone's life forever.
