We exist to improve the lives
of everyone affected by epilepsy


Charitable trusts and foundations

We are fortunate to work with a number of charitable trusts and foundations to support vulnerable people trying to cope with epilepsy. As Epilepsy Action receives no statutory funding over 95 percent of our income is from donations. Forming these partnerships, from small family-run funds to larger, structured foundations, is essential to all the ways people with epilepsy are helped:

  • Delivering an advice and information service which provides a vital lifeline for people trying to cope with living with epilepsy. The cost of running this service year on year is just over £300,000 a year. Recent donations have included:
Garfield Weston Foundation logo£25,000The Wixamtree Trust logo£1,200

The Drapers'
Charitable Fund


Morrison's Foundation

for supporting health information resources for children.
  • Providing support where people live and work: our Local Services Team manage a network of local branches and coffee and chat groups. They also provide an extensive UK-wide events programme, offering people with epilepsy and their families safe and supportive opportunities to meet up. The overall service costs around £450,000 every year. We receive funding for specific events as well as contributions towards the whole service, for example:
Fowler Smith
and Jones Trust

Sovereign Healthcare Charitable Trust
  • Projects – sometimes a specific need is met by a discrete piece of work, such as a film for use in schools, for which we received two grants of £10,000 and £1,000.

Thank you so much for these gifts
