Having epilepsy can feel like solitary confinement

It can feel like no one understands you. Perhaps you will decide to stay at home where you are safe. Friends may slip away, work may become impossible…

Coffee and chat groups are a new service from Epilepsy Action. They help people with epilepsy, family members and carers meet informally, somewhere they can feel safe from harm and prejudice.

There are 23 groups right across the UK, supporting hundreds of people. But many more are needed.

Your gift today can help set up a new coffee and chat group. Your donation can help train a volunteer host, find a safe venue and spread the word about a new group.

Your gift can give friendship, acceptance and support to someone with epilepsy for the very first time

…so no one has to face epilepsy alone.
