Young Epilepsy is the only UK-wide charity exclusively supporting the 112,000 children and young people aged 25 and under with epilepsy and their families.
Over 600,000 people in the UK have epilepsy which is equivalent to around 1 in 103 people. There are at least 40 different seizure types and people may have one or several different seizure types.
We exist to improve the lives of children and young people with the condition to enable them to fulfil their potential and ensure they have the best quality of life.
With over 100 years expertise we provide world class diagnosis, assessment and rehabilitation for children and young people with epilepsy. We also undertake research into the condition and how it can be treated.
Our unique blend of specialist services includes a school, college and residential services providing education and healthcare for children and young people with epilepsy, autism and other neurological conditions.
We also provide a range of support and information for parents, children and young people and training for professionals. It campaigns for better access to, and quality of, health and education services, and to raise awareness and increase understanding of epilepsy.
