Jasmine is working on the front line in the fight against Covid-19
The last six months have been difficult for everybody, especially for people living with epilepsy who have faced increased fear and anxiety. Jasmine has received support from us since she was diagnosed with epilepsy aged 17 and is now working as an ICU nurse.
‘The Epilepsy Society has always been there for me - I wouldn’t be nursing today without their support. They have been a lifeline for so many other people with epilepsy, not least during lockdown when many were desperate for expert information and support that they could access from home.
In the first three months of the pandemic income fell by more than 42%
The Covid-19 crisis means The Epilepsy Society missed out on so many donations it would normally have received, and countless fundraising events have been cancelled. In the first three months of the pandemic alone, the charity’s income fell by more than 42%.
There is no other organisation in the UK that offers such wide-ranging, high-quality support for people with epilepsy and their families. But if we want The Epilepsy Society to continue to be there for us all, it needs our urgent help.
Your support today is so important.
We have to maintain vital services that so many people with epilepsy and their families depend on… but we simply can’t do it without you.
Here are some of our services:
Please give whatever you can today.
