What’s it like to be an Action Team volunteer?

You’ll be able to pick and choose short volunteering tasks that help raise awareness of epilepsy. It’s up to you whether you do this online via social media or in your local community.

You could be:

• Watching and sharing our first aid videos
• Contacting your local schools to tell them about our free training for teachers
• Encouraging your community to get involved in Purple Day
• Completing a survey to share your experiences

There’s lots of variety to keep it interesting and the tasks are designed to make an impact whilst being easy to complete. You don’t have to get involved with them all, you can choose the tasks that are particularly relevant or of most interest to you.
