The Meath Epilepsy Trust

The Meath Epilepsy Trust provides support and a caring home for more than 60 adults who have severe epilepsy, coupled with a learning disability and in some cases, a physical disability. This debilitating combination of conditions means many of our residents will not reach a point where they can live independently and will spend the rest of their lives with us. We aim to maximise their quality of life by helping them to understand and manage their conditions and by giving them opportunties they would otherwise miss out on.

Founded in 1892 by visionary philanthropist Mary, Countess of Meath, we provide day care through our day centre offering a range of learning activities such as drama, music, dance, a well-equipped gym, an IT suite and printing, painting and drawing.

One of the UK's leading providers of complex epilepsy care, the Meath is situated within beautiful grounds in Godalming, Surrey - a location offering an easily accessible local community and good transport links, both of which are vital to residents and their families.
