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.

Through the incredible efforts of our supporters over the last twelve months, we are delighted that Epilepsy Research UK was able to make over £1.3 million available for our 2021 grant awards.
