Christmas Appeal

Thank you for your support!

We are absolutely thrilled to share the remarkable success of our Christmas campaign in 2023!

Thanks to the incredible generosity and support from our dedicated community, we raised nearly £62,000, a truly remarkable achievement that will undoubtedly have a profound impact on children and young people living with epilepsy. This outpouring of support will enable us to provide crucial resources, support services, and research initiatives that are essential for improving the lives of those affected by epilepsy and reach more children living in poverty.

In a significant milestone for us, our inaugural participation in The Big Give campaign resulted in doubling our donations, raising almost £30,000! This collaboration not only amplified our fundraising efforts but also highlighted the power of collective giving and community support. We extend our deepest gratitude to each and every supporter, donor, and advocate who contributed to our cause. 

Your generosity and compassion have made a tangible difference in the lives of individuals living with epilepsy, and your unwavering support fuels our commitment to creating a brighter future for those impacted by this condition. Thank you for your kindness, dedication, and for being a beacon of hope for young people living with epilepsy.

If you missed out on supporting us during Christmas then fear not as you can still make a donation via our website.

No child should miss out on epilepsy support because of poverty

Poverty has a huge impact on childhood epilepsy

Families are facing heart breaking choices. Do you put food on the table or help your child attend their epilepsy appointment?

These families are at breaking point. We need to reach them.

More funds are urgently needed so these children can receive direct support from Youth Support Coordinators like Jeanenne.

I’ve got all sorts of things going on in cases at the moment. Children with epilepsy who are going to bed hungry, full of worries and anxiety. Children who are having suicidal thoughts.

Children suffering from bereavement. Parents who are going to have to give up work to care for their child with epilepsy.
Jeanenne, Youth Support Coordinator

Demand for our services is increasing as the cost-of-living crisis grows. We desperately want to reach more children and their families living in deprived areas.

Together, we can reach children with epilepsy living in poverty. Help them get the support they need.

Your donation will help people like Jeanenne to provide direct support. We’ll be able to reach more children in deprived areas and give them the support they need.

The difference you can make to children like Lucy

Lucy’s Mum explains why the support Young Epilepsy provides is so important:

She needed extra support and I was blown away with how efficient and supportive Young Epilepsy have been. We had weekly meetings which have really helped Lucy’s understanding and confidence.

How your support can make a big impact

What your kind support can provide

Reaching our target will enable us to: Better engage with children living in poverty, working in partnership with schools and the NHS. Help those children with epilepsy most in need to access direct support through our Youth Support Coordinators. Recruit more young people from deprived backgrounds onto our Youth Voice Network.

Build a community

Donations can provide more Youth Support Coordinators to facilitate group work, creating a community for young people with epilepsy to meet others with the condition and share their stories. They empower young people to improve their outlook on living with epilepsy, building their resilience, confidence and independence.
