Student enquiries

Unfortunately the press team no longer has the capacity or resources to respond to individual student enquiries and is unable to help with specific essays, documentaries or research projects.

This website provides a wide range of information about epilepsy and the work we do at Epilepsy Action, including epilepsy statistics and campaigning issues. If you are still unable to find what you’re looking for, contact us at press@epilepsy.org.uk
