Epilepsy Society is the UK’s leading provider of epilepsy services.

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 advocacy, research and care. We put people at the heart of everything that we do; and we hope to see the day when epilepsy is irrelevant.

 

 

About Epilepsy Society

Our work

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.

Our Chalfont Centre

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.

How we support you

Campaigns

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.

Epilepsy helpline

Epilepsy Society's confidential helpline is available for anyone affected by epilepsy. We welcome calls from people with epilepsy, their families and friends, as well as professionals such as doctors, nurses, care workers, teachers and employers.
