Support for you

Being a parent looks different to everyone. But everyone wants the best for their child. We therefore offer a range of support that you can access – whatever suits you. We’re here to help you look after yourself, so you can be strong for your family.

Ashley's story

“I found the Talk and Support group really helpful. I originally came to Epilepsy Action for information for my child, but I now also know there’s a place to go when I need help too”

Support for your child

We offer resources to help your child make sense of their epilepsy, or for those of a similar age. For younger children we have Just for kids and the Epilepsy Space for those that are older.

We also have information about the key milestones for your child, so you can feel informed every step of the way.

We also partner with Young Epilepsy who also provide case work for 8-16 year olds.
