Make a difference

Legacy gifts make up more than a third of our voluntary income. This enables us to keep our helpline open to support people with epilepsy and helps fund our groundbreaking research for the future.

Why leave a gift to Epilepsy Society in your Will

Worldwide, over 60 million people have seizures (many in developing countries) making it the most common serious neurological condition in the world.  More than 500,000 people have epilepsy in the UK - that is about one in every 100.

  • Every hour more than three people are diagnosed with epilepsy in the UK
     
  • Every day three people die from epilepsy related incidents in the UK
     
  • Despite its prevalence, one third of people with epilepsy do not respond to current treatments available

Gifts in Wills play a vital part in continuing our research into the genetic causes of seizures with the ultimate aim of providing the right treatment, from the point of diagnosis for everyone affected.  A gift in your Will, no matter large or small, can really help in helping to achieve our aims.

If you are able to, please remember Epilepsy Society in your will. With your help we can continue making a real and lasting contribution to the lives of people with epilepsy.
