Is your family affected by epilepsy? Do you have a child with epilepsy? Do you need practical advice on how to support a family member with epilepsy?

If so then why not come along to Epilepsy Action’s family day, in Bradford. There’s something for the whole family. You’re welcome to join us on your own or you can bring everyone along.

For adults we have a range of workshops and talks on how to:

  • Live safely with epilepsy
  • Manage epilepsy with the ketogenic diet
  • Give basic first aid for seizures
  • Manage stress and its impact on your epilepsy

There will be activities for children and young people too, including a variety of arts workshops and African drumming. The sessions are suitable for children and young people aged five to 16 and will be tailored to their interests.

Some workshops will mainly be of interest to parents and carers, but others will be relevant to anybody affected by epilepsy. If you would like more details about the workshops please contact cchallenger@epilepsy.org.uk
