how your money helps

Over half a million people in the UK have epilepsy. A staggering 87 new cases of epilepsy are diagnosed every day, affecting the lives of not only those who are diagnosed but their families, carers and friends.

All aspects of Epilepsy Society’s work are focused on helping those with epilepsy, their families, carers and friends. We depend on your donations to help us to continue to support all those with epilepsy.
