I have epilepsy

We’re here for you

Epilepsy can be frightening and it can feel lonely.  Sometimes people just don't understand what you are dealing with. 

Young people living with epilepsy have told us how important it is for them to understand their condition, and how making connections  with other young people and hearing their experiences really helps. 

From trusted advice and real stories about life with epilepsy, to support services and opportunities to have your say and influence to the world around you, we're here for you.
