Our Chalfont Centre

Epilepsy Society's Chalfont Centre in Chalfont St Peter, Buckinghamshire has been the charity's home since it was founded in 1892. Explore our on-site facilities, volunteering and career opportunities, events and more below.


Please note that Epilepsy Society has now closed its site to the public, including dog walkers, in order to safeguard the vulnerable residents who live here. We hope you will understand and we look forward to welcoming everyone again during more settled times.
