Support our brand new national campaign #InTheMoment

We're excited to announce our national awareness and fundraising campaign, 'In The Moment', is launched.
At Young Epilepsy, we've been improving the lives of children and young people living with epilepsy and related neurological conditions for over 120 years, helping to break down the obstacles to opportunity, once and for all.

Purpose of the campaign

Our goal with the campaign is to ensure everyone understands the true impact of epilepsy on young people today; and how it can change anyone’s life in a single moment.

Over the next three years we’re hoping to give young people the confidence and means to share their personal experience of epilepsy; its impact on their everyday lives and future prospects, as well as those around them.

Such experiences might include the moment a teenager is officially diagnosed, or the devastating impact of a child’s first seizure on mum and dad. Most importantly, we want to highlight the many inspiring stories of how those affected by epilepsy – the young people themselves, as well as their family and friends – have overcome the challenges they have faced, together.

Finally, we're working to secure systemic change to key public policy and practice, finally giving young people with epilepsy the life-changing support they need (wherever they are and whatever they're doing)

We've launched a dedicated website on Purple Day at, where you will be able to learn more about our campaign. More importantly, this is where you will find the many 'epilepsy moments' shared by children and young people affected by epilepsy, as well as their friends and families.
