We’ve partnered with Octopus Legacy to make including Epilepsy Society in your will easy - and free.

With other providers, it can usually cost £150-£300 to create a simple will and can go up to £1,000 for something more complicated.

A gift in your will could help us transform the lives of people living with epilepsy through our world leading research.

Worldwide, over 60 million people have epilepsy.

Worldwide, over 60 million people have epilepsy (many in developing countries) making it the most common serious neurological condition in the world.  More than 600,000 people have epilepsy in the UK - that is about one in every 100.

  • Every hour more than three people are diagnosed with epilepsy in the UK
  • Every day three people die from epilepsy related incidents in the UK
  • Despite its prevalence, one third of people with epilepsy do not respond to current treatments available

A 10% gift helps us drive progress, enable support, increase impact and invest in the future.

Gifts in Wills play a vital part in continuing our research into the genetic causes of seizures with the ultimate aim of providing the right treatment, from the point of diagnosis for everyone affected.

A gift in your Will, no matter how large or small, can really help in achieving our aims. If you are able to, please remember Epilepsy Society in your Will. With your help we can continue making a real and lasting contribution to the lives of people with epilepsy.

You can find a local, qualified solicitor via the Law Society
