Virtual groups

Virtual groups from Epilepsy Action are a great way to connect with others who have experiences of epilepsy, in a safe and relaxed environment.

Attend a virtual meeting

Our virtual groups are open to anyone in the UK who is over 18. You might be living with epilepsy yourself, or you might be a parent or carer of someone living with epilepsy.

To attend a meeting via Zoom, ensure Zoom application is installed on your device.
