The Big Give - One donation, twice the impact!

No child should miss out on epilepsy support because of poverty

Your donation is worth DOUBLE!

This Christmas we teamed up with the Big Give Campaign to help children and their families who are at breaking point. They need our support more than ever.    

Every pound donated via the Big Give website between 28th November – 5th December was worth DOUBLE! That’s double your impact.

We still have a small amount of match funding outside of the Big Give so it's not too late for your donation to be worth double.

Poverty has a huge impact on childhood epilepsy

It’s going to be a bleak Christmas for many children with 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.

Watch Jeanenne in this short video. She’ll tell you more about how she supports children with epilepsy and how you can get involved in the fundraising campaign.

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.

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

One donation, twice the impact!

Every donation you make will be DOUBLED. Your donation will help ensure children and young people with epilepsy in deprived areas can access the support they need.

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.
