Epilepsy friendly mark

What is the epilepsy friendly mark?

The Epilepsy Friendly mark, recognises those institutions who are doing more to improve their understanding of epilepsy and provide better support to their students

What does the Epilepsy Friendly mark mean?

Young people with epilepsy who are moving on to higher education, can feel daunted with the changes in lifestyle, as well as leaving home and studying for exams.

For those affected by epilepsy, this can be the case and is often made worse by stress and issues with concentration, memory and seizures.

Epilepsy is often misunderstood and so there can be confusion when it comes to the support in education. The Epilepsy Friendly mark provides reassurance that an institution is working to improve its understanding of epilepsy and the support they provide.
