Coronavirus - Branches and coffee and chat groups

Based on current guidance all local branch and group meetings and activities have been suspended. There will be no meetings until further notice.

We realise that many people rely on their group meetings and activities for information and support. Please do make use of the Epilepsy Action helpline for information and support as an alternative if you need to while these meetings are not taking place.

Virtual groups

Our virtual groups are a great way of connecting with others who have experiences of epilepsy, in a safe and relaxed environment. Learn more about our virtual groups.

We will update you on any developments to group activity guidance.
