I have had epilepsy since 1985 and have always wanted to save lives of those that need it, I would love to donate something that I am able to but have epilepsy so I can't , this makes me very very sad, wanting to help but can't don't seem fair especially to someone that could die.

Hi Jane

Thanks for your comment. It’s great that you want to help people.

There are many ways to help people living with epilepsy. Volunteers play a critical part of our work here at Epilepsy Action. If you would like to become involved, please see the volunteering section of our website.

Although in the UK you’re not permitted to donate blood currently, you can still donate organs. For more information you could ask at your GP practice, or visit www.organdonation.nhs.uk.
