Young Epilepsy - Why do we exist? 

Epilepsy can be one of the most frightening and isolating conditions a child can experience. The loss of any sense of safety, trapped in an unpredictable world, not knowing when their next seizure will happen, where it will happen, who will be there and if they’ll be hurt.

Living in this unpredictable world takes its toll on a child’s physical and mental health, as well as impacting their education and social life. And the current COVID-19 pandemic has made things even worse. For many, only through a lifetime of medication can they live seizure free, some need brain surgery, and many of those who are able to control their seizures still live in constant fear of the next one.

Epilepsy is limiting the life chances of thousands of children and without a change in society, will do so for the rest of their lives. We exist to create a society where children and young people with epilepsy are enabled to thrive and fulfil their potential.  A society in which their voices are respected, and their ambitions realised.

What do we do? 

Children and young people with epilepsy have a right to be heard. We listen, and we work with them to make their lives better. We coordinate research that advances diagnostics and treatments, we campaign for children’s rights to access healthcare and education, and we provide innovative tools, information, and practical support for living everyday life. Children and young people are actively involved in developing all our services, ensuring that young people are at the heart of everything we do.
