ERUK is dedicated to driving and enabling research into epilepsy.

As a research funding organisation, we do not have qualified staff based in our office that can provide advice or information. There are a number of charities with a dedicated helpline and specially trained staff who may be able to help you.

Being told that you have epilepsy can be quite a shock, and we understand if you are concerned and confused on getting your diagnosis. We also understand that you will probably want to find out as much as possible about the condition, so do check out the pages on our website, there is a lot of useful information there.

If you feel that it would be helpful to speak to someone else with epilepsy or to share your experiences, in a safe and secure online environment, then you can join our HealthUnlocked Community Forum. It is easy to join, you just need to set up a password.

At a reception held on May 20th at the Royal Society to launch National Epilepsy Week, we announced grant funding of over £1 million across ten research projects all over the UK.
