Leading the world in groundbreaking research.
Over the course of a history that spans three centuries, the DNA of both Epilepsy Society and Chalfont St Peter have become intrinsically entwined. The village is very much a part of the life blood of the charity and vice versa.
Our epilepsy experts and care homes not only provide specialised care for people with epilepsy onsite and across the UK, but are also leading the world in groundbreaking research into the genetic causes of epilepsy.
We offer a very warm welcome to all in our community Coffee Shop. We sell a wide range of coffee, flavoured teas, milkshakes and smoothies to quench your thirst at very reasonable prices.
The Chalfont Centre and our Gowers unit lead the way in the most advanced techniques for the diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy.
Volunteering at Chalfont
The volunteers at our Chalfont Centre in Buckinghamshire make an invaluable difference to the lives of our 92 residents who live with epilepsy, often as part of more complex needs.
When Epilepsy Society was founded in 1892, the word 'gene' had not even been coined. But today our scientists are making life changing discoveries by sequencing the DNA or genome of people with epilepsy.
The ultimate goals of our current research are to spearhead personalised treatment and to incorporate genomic diagnosis into the NHS for people with epilepsy.
In these challenging times, we rely on donations to ensure vital services for our beneficiaries can continue. If you can spare a donation or pledge a monthly gift, you can help fund research breakthroughs and provide vital support for everyone affected by epilepsy.
