Join other families living with epilepsy at our family day in London to have fun, make memories and share experiences.
Families living with epilepsy will come together to enjoy a whole range of sports, games and crafts with their families including football, netball, juggling and cycling.
Short workshops will bring children of similar ages together to break the ice and learn more about epilepsy. Then the fun and games begin. Activities will be available for the whole family to join in regardless of your age. You will be able to make friends and enjoy the day, safe in the knowledge help is on hand. The coaches, some of whom have epilepsy themselves, will encourage you to have a go and inspire you to achieve your potential.
Parents and carers will have the opportunity to meet other families, share stories and support each other. Epilepsy healthcare professionals, Epilepsy Action volunteers and staff will be available to provide further information and advice. First aiders will be on hand at the event to help if needed.
Join in the penalty shootout, cycling challenge and space hopper races. Leave with a big smile on your face, having had lots of fun and knowing you are not alone.
