Epilepsy Action is looking for young people between 13-19 and their parents (in the UK) to be involved with a Question Time event at the House of Commons.
The idea behind the event is for MPs to meet with young people (and parents) to discuss how to best support people with medical conditions, in our case epilepsy, at school.
Where and when?
The event will take place in the House of Commons on 27 October (during half term) from 2.30pm-4.30pm. There will be several young people at the event representing different health conditions.
What is required?
Your child will need to be able to attend the event and put questions to politicians. But don’t worry! Epilepsy Action’s education officer, Leanne Creighton, will be there to help. Leanne will have a chat with you and your child before the meeting to work on the questions. Your child will be fully supported and parents are very welcome at the event. Epilepsy Action will reimburse all travel expenses.
If you and your child are interested in taking part, or would like more information, please contact Leanne Creighton on 0113 210 8889, or email her at email@example.com
Places are limited so please contact us as soon as possible. This is your chance to help raise awareness among politicians, and to shape the future experiences of other young people with epilepsy at school.
