Hi my name is Suzanne I live in preston Lancashire and looking for a group near me and how to get involved as I don't know many people with my problem and find it hard so having people that live with epilepsy and understand would be a great help thanks Suzanne

Hello Suzanne

We have groups in various locations over Lancashire. You can search for a group near you on the local services page on our website.

Many people tell us that connecting with other people who have epilepsy makes a positive difference to them. I hope that meeting other people who have epilepsy offers you the support you are looking for.
