Are you confused about what the changes to benefits mean for you?

Epilepsy Action and Epilepsy Society are working together to host free information days in London and Manchester about the recent benefits changes, and what these mean for people with epilepsy.

You will have the opportunity to:

  • Find out more about Employment Support Allowance (ESA) and Personal Independence Payment (PIP) from benefits experts
  • Ask questions and take part in interactive workshops
  • Get information about making a claim and the assessment process
  • Learn how to appeal a benefits decision

These events are free, but places are limited and booking is essential.

  • Map and directions.
  • Please contact us on 0113 210 8889 if you have any accessibility issues or questions.
  • Fully accessible venue
