Epilepsy Scotland

Epilepsy is one of the most common serious neurological conditions in the world and over 40,000 people across Scotland are being treated for the condition. Epilepsy Scotland aim to ensure that people living with epilepsy have access to high quality medical, social and education support and information services; are free from discrimination and stigma and have the right to determine their own way of life.

We offer a variety of direct support and information services including: a one to one Community Outreach Service in Edinburgh and Glasgow, the Lighthouse Youth Project; providing group and individual support for young people, sensitive training on epilepsy issues to parents and individuals, advice and counselling, holistic therapy, a confidential freephone helpline and information service, high profile policy and campaigning work and a range of accredited training courses.
