Epilepsy Society's vision is to make possible a future where epilepsy will be treated effectively, cured and potentially prevented. We are the only charity in the UK with a dedicated research centre located alongside medical facilities including Europe’s only MRI dedicated to epilepsy.
Our new phase of genetic research will enable those with epilepsy to receive the right diagnosis, at the right time and receive the right medication and care. We also provide information and via helpline emotional support for people with epilepsy, their families, friends and professionals.
