If you have a child with epilepsy aged 8-13, then come to our family event.

  • Learn and meet others
  • Meet other families affected by the condition
  • Find out what support is available from Epilepsy Action and medical professionals
  • Come and listen to medical professionals

We'll be joined by Dr Anita Devlin, consultant paediatric nerologist, epilepsy nurse specialist Lisa Emmerson and dietitian Linda Air.

There will be a child-friendly workshop run by Newcastle University. And we are very excited to have staff from the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health.

This will be an opportunity for children and adults to have their say about epilepsy services and how they can be developed.

There is a booking fee of £5 per family.
