We are Epilepsy Society. The UK's leading charity for epilepsy research and support.
Due to current circumstances in relation to the coronavirus some of our services have been reduced with our staff working from home. Despite this our top priority at Epilepsy Society is to support people living with epilepsy. You may notice a slight change in our communications. For the time being, we will focus our efforts on making sure you have all the information you need from us to help you as best we can in the current climate.
The Chalfont Centre and our Gowers unit lead the way in the most advanced techniques for the diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy.
We are the leading charity care provider, where people love to work and live. Our wide range of care is tailored to the needs of each individual, and our professional staff are committed to maximising the life potential of everyone within our care homes.
Our campaigns team lobby government and decision-makers on the issues that matter to people with epilepsy. From safer medicines for pregnant women to the dangers of online harm, and from medicines supply to public transport access, we raise awareness of the daily challenges facing people with epilepsy – putting your needs at the heart of what we do.
