Changes to benefits – events

9 Aug 2013

If you are confused about the recent benefits changes, you may need a little help understanding how they affect you. Two events from Epilepsy Action and Epilepsy Society aim to offer you just that – by making these changes a little clearer

A man counts coppersEpilepsy Action and Epilepsy Society are working together to host information days about recent benefit changes, and what these mean for people with epilepsy.

•    Ask questions and take part in interactive workshops.
•    Get information about making a claim and the assessment process.
