Worldwide, over 60 million people have seizures (many in developing countries) making it the most common serious neurological condition in the world. More than 500,000 people have epilepsy in the UK - that is about one in every 100. For anyone with epilepsy, having seizures, the fear of having seizures, and their unpredictability, impacts upon all areas of life, including education, employment, driving, leisure, safety and personal relationships.
Epilepsy Society’s Vision is a full life for everyone affected by epilepsy. We want everyone affected by epilepsy to have the best opportunity for a full life – as free from seizures as possible. We set out to make a difference to every person affected by epilepsy whatever their background, however seriously it affects them, and whether they have the condition themselves or are close to someone with epilepsy.
The charity’s mission is: “To enhance the quality of life of people affected by epilepsy by promoting public awareness and education, by undertaking research and by delivering specialist medical care and support services.”
