March was an exciting month with a new virtual Talk and Support group launching.

We held our first Black and People of Colour group, hosted by our fantastic volunteers.

March was also the month of Purple Day, and some of our groups got into the spirit, holding fundraising events across the country. We heard lots of stories of groups having fun, celebrating and raising awareness!


Hot topics

These are the topics that came up the most in this month’s groups:


Positive stories

Group leaders and volunteers shared some of their feedback with us:

‘Lots of positive feedback about coming to our group, as they can relate to others and feel comfortable chatting to others about their epilepsy.’

‘The group ended on a really positive note with many people talking about how beneficial they found the opportunity to talk, share and listen to other people. The group really demonstrated the benefits that peer support can have.’
