Vision and mission
Our vision is for a world where epilepsy is irrelevant. And people with epilepsy lead the lives they want to lead.
We are the UK’s only charity transforming the lives of people with epilepsy through world-leading research, advocacy and care. We put people at the heart of everything that we do; and we hope to see the day when epilepsy is irrelevant.
The National Society for the Employment of Epileptics (NSEE) was launched in 1892 by a group of London philanthropists and medical men.
The ultimate goals of our current research are to spearhead personalised treatment and to incorporate genomic diagnosis into the NHS for people with epilepsy.
Epilepsy Society is the UK’s leading provider of epilepsy services. Through our cutting edge research, awareness campaigns, information resources and expert care, we work for everyone affected by epilepsy in the UK.
