How Epilepsy Action can support you

Support groups

Epilepsy Action offers online talks and support groups. This is a great opportunity for people to connect with others that have had similar experiences with epilepsy in a secure and relaxed environment.

The virtual groups offer a warm space for you to listen and talk with others, sharing your experiences with epilepsy. 

Join a support group


This service from Epilepsy Action matches you with a friendly volunteer for regular chats online or by phone.

If you are over the age of 18 and live in the UK, you can access the befriending service if you feeling isolated, lonely or just need someone to talk to. This can include people living with epilepsy themselves or are caring for a close family member with that medical condition.
