Young Reps | Who we are | About Us

Young Reps

Article 12 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) establishes the right of children and young people to express their views and be involved in decisions that affect them, both as individuals and as a group.

Young Epilepsy is committed to creating a society where children and young people with epilepsy thrive and fulfil their potential. To achieve this, Young Epilepsy will engage with children and young people to ensure that their experiences and views inform and guide the work that we do.

Our Young Reps are leading on this. The group is compiled of young people aged 16-25 who represent children and young people living with epilepsy throughout the UK. The group is fundamental in ensuring that young people are at the centre of everything we do; the Young Reps contribute to our strategy and are involved at all levels of the charity to ensure that decisions and overall direction of services provided meet the needs of children and young people with epilepsy.
