Epilepsy Action Volunteer Awards 2017

Volunteer Awards Ceremony

Do you know of an Epilepsy Action volunteer who goes above and beyond to improve the lives of people with epilepsy? 

Nominations are now closed.

We couldn't achieve what we do without the support of our fantastic volunteers! You are our feet on the ground - delivering epilepsy awareness sessions, supporting others with the condition and helping at fundraising events. Once a year, we take the chance to say a massive thank you!

Epilepsy Action's Volunteer Awards recognise the outstanding support given to the charity by its volunteers nationwide. The Volunteer Awards 2017 will be presented at a ceremony in Leeds in February 2017.

  • Creating change

    This award celebrates our brilliant change makers. Whether they are writing to their MP, lobbying their local commissioners or telling their story in campaign materials, these are people working to improve the world for people with epilepsy.

  • Fundraising

    From running a marathon to organising a silent auction, we have some amazing fundraisers. This award celebrates individuals or groups who have raised vital funds that help us continue our work.

  • Improving public knowledge

    This award celebrates those who strive to educate others about epilepsy. Whether they are leading epilepsy awareness sessions, or proof reading our advice materials, these are people who are busting the myths surrounding the condition.

  • Speaking out

    One of the best ways to let people know about epilepsy is for people to tell their epilepsy stories. This award celebrates volunteers who have spoken out about how epilepsy affects their life. This could be in the media, in a blog or on social media.

  • Supporting others

    We know that, sometimes, people affected by epilepsy need a bit of support. This award celebrates those volunteers who work tirelessly to be a listening ear to those with the condition.

  • Overcoming adversity

    A life affected by epilepsy isn’t always easy. Some of our volunteers have overcome huge barriers to get to where they are today. This award celebrates those that have overcome adversity to give their time as a volunteer.

  • The Hilary Figg award

    for long and distinguished service

    Some of our volunteers have given a lifetime of service to Epilepsy Action. This award celebrates this and is awarded to our most longstanding volunteers.
