We exist to improve the lives
of everyone affected by epilepsy

June Massey

Having served as Honorary Treasurer and Vice-Chair of the Council of Management, the Trustees elected me as Chair in July 2010. It is an honour to hold the post and I intend to serve the Association and its members to the best of my ability.

June MasseyMy son’s epilepsy was diagnosed 23 years ago when he was age 3. I held the post of Treasurer since co-founding the East Herts Branch of Epilepsy Action in 1993 and have been an Accredited Volunteer since 2000.

My work as a Specific Learning Difficulties Consultant means that I have the opportunity of helping education providers and employers to meet the needs of individuals with a range of conditions, including epilepsy. I deliver training, in my professional role and also in a voluntary capacity as an Epilepsy Action Accredited Volunteer, in epilepsy awareness and the educational implications of epilepsy, to educationalists, employers, voluntary groups, parents and young people.

While serving as a Council member, I very much enjoy seeing the fantastic work of my fellow volunteers and representing Epilepsy Action in a variety of areas including speaking at Epilepsy Action conferences. I have been grateful for the opportunity to work as a member of Council and play an active and enthusiastic role in the continuing growth of Epilepsy Action.
