Epilepsy Action

Epilepsy Action is the largest member-led epilepsy organisation in Britain, acting as the voice for the UK's estimated 600,000 people with epilepsy, as well as their friends, families, carers, health professionals and the many other people on whose lives the condition has an impact.

They help people seeking the right medical treatment and care. They have helped people prescribed the wrong Anti Epilepsy Drugs and having side effects sometimes worse than the seizures themselves. They have helped those looking for their nearest specialist nurse or hungry for information about their suitability for surgery.

Epilepsy Action receives almost no government funding, so they rely on donations from people like you for £9 of every £10 it costs to support people with epilepsy.
