What we do

Children and young people with epilepsy have a right to be heard. We stand with them.

Childhood epilepsy can be frightening, isolating and often a misunderstood condition.   We work with children and young people with epilepsy, to ensure their voices are heard and their rights protected.

We campaign for children’s rights. We deliver health services and research that improve diagnosis and treatments. We support children and young people throughout school, college, and university. We provide information, friendly advice, and practical help for living everyday life.
