Epilepsy Action Northern Ireland

Around 22,000 in Northern Ireland have epilepsy. That’s 1 in 83 people, the highest prevalence in the UK.

It affects everyone in different ways, so it can be difficult to control and challenging to live with.

Epilepsy Action Northern Ireland has been providing information, advice and support for over 70 years.
