We fight to improve the lives
of everyone affected by epilepsy

Purple Day - 26 March

purple day 2020 people

There may be an unprecedented virus outbreak going on – but we can still raise epilepsy awareness, fundraise and be here for each other on Purple Day!

Show your support, your way

The NHS is stretched to breaking point. Let’s make sure people with epilepsy can still get the help they need.

I'd like to help


Purple Day is the most important day of the year for affecting real change and improving life for people with epilepsy.

Don’t let the pandemic stop us

Whether it’s raising money, volunteering your time, or sharing your own experiences, you can show your support, your way.

Count me in


With delays and difficulties accessing services, more people are now contacting our helpline in desperate need of help.

Many of them feeling helpless, alone and like they have nowhere else to turn

By showing your support this Purple Day, you can show them that they’re not alone and make sure the expert help continues to be there.

Show your support



From purple dress down days to zoom parties, quizzes and game nights, and anything in between, you can help make sure people with epilepsy get help when they need it most.

Request your fundraising pack today and we’ll send you everything you need including an organiser’s guide, posters, balloons and lots more.
