National Epilepsy Week 2020: Highlights! 

This year’s theme was ‘More Than Seizures’ and we know that epilepsy is more than just a seizure, it can affect young people in so many other ways, so we joined with other epilepsy charities across the UK to raise awareness of these challenges.

Each day on social media we focused on different areas of people's lives that can be affected by epilepsy. These included growing up, wellbeing, education, socialising, family and the impact of support from epilepsy nurses.

Some of our fantastic Young Reps done an Instagram takeover and we shared insights from young people with epilepsy from around the country, as well as others who support them. We posted lots of new and exciting videos, support information on The Channel, and shared some key research findings.

If you missed any of our new and exciting content then scroll back through our social channels and head The Channel to catch up.
