We are Young Epilepsy
Epilepsy can be one of the most frightening and isolating conditions a child can experience. There’s a loss of all sense of safety – not knowing when and where their next seizure will happen, who’ll be there and whether they’ll be hurt.
For 125 years, we’ve been transforming the lives of children and young people with epilepsy.
We’ve led the way in an inclusive, progressive and nurturing approach to the education and support of children and young people with epilepsy.
Today, more than ever, Young Epilepsy is dedicated to standing up with and for children and young people with epilepsy. We’re here for them. It’s our job to listen and work with them so they can fulfil their potential.
We campaign for children’s rights. We deliver health services and research that improves diagnosis and treatments. We support children and young people throughout school, college, and university. We provide information, friendly advice, and practical help for living everyday life.
