Epilepsy Champions take pride of place at Parliamentary launch.
Thirty one staff from Surrey and Sussex schools who trained to become
Epilepsy Champions as part of a new scheme run by Young Epilepsy are being thanked today at a launch held at the House of Commons.
The staff took part in a pilot scheme organised by Young Epilepsy and the Tandridge Confederation, which covered 21 schools and 7000 pupils, around 50 of whom have epilepsy.
Young Epilepsy has appointed Jonathan Sharpe as its new Principal.
A specialist medical centre focussing on childhood epilepsy has won a Local Authority Building Control (LABC) building excellence award and has also been highly praised in a report by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
Lingfield-based epilepsy charity, Young Epilepsy, has been forced to take drastic action to stop up to 40 students who use wheelchairs from being injured.
The charity has banned the use of wheelchairs on St Piers Lane, which is the main entrance to and from its campus, due to the increasingly poor state of the road surface.
Huge congratulations and a massive thank you to our amazing London marathon runners!
After the roaring success of last year, places are filling up fast for our next Parents and Families conference, which is being held on Saturday 3 July from 9.30 – 17.30 at the Ramada Manchester Piccadilly Hotel in the heart of Manchester. We will again be running some fantastic workshops and have key speakers and other specialists available on the day to give plenty of good advice and help to attendees.
At only £15 per adult and £10 per 12-18 year old, this really is a day not to be missed!
