Around one in every 100 people has got epilepsy. It can strike anyone, at anytime in their lives. And most people will never know what caused their epilepsy.
Epilepsy Action can help. With your gift we can provide advice, improve healthcare, campaign for fairness and help to end stigma for people affected by epilepsy.
Epilepsy Action receives almost no government funding, so we rely on donations from people like you for £9 of every £10 it costs to support people with epilepsy.
Your donations make a difference
£6 can help our experts support someone newly diagnosed with epilepsy, providing advice and information when they need it most.
£25 can help campaign to protect existing epilepsy specialist nurses from NHS cuts.
£50 could fund a six month supply of up-to-date information booklets and leaflets needed by an epilepsy specialist nurse for their patients.
£180 could fund an awareness session at a school, work place or care home by one of our specially trained volunteers.
£250 could help fund brand-new research, such as a long-term clinical study by a research centre of excellence.
