Top up your direct debit

Your decision to top up your direct debit could change a person with epilepsy’s life.

Your donation means that not only can we help thousands more people via our free Helpline and give vital information to millions online, we can also offer a community for each person to belong to via our Befriending service.


Every direct debit increased means we can keep providing vital support to those who are lonely and isolated.
