  • Mission statement

    The Trust’s remit is to provide practical support to children and their families coping with severe epilepsy and to increase awareness and understanding of epilepsy and help remove the stigma associated with the condition.

    In terms of the distribution of funds, the Muir Maxwell Trust has directed its charitable spending to three key areas:

    1. Helping families – to directly impact families struggling to cope.

    2. Helping hospitals – by supplying equipment to hospitals where these items will make a significant difference to families and where the funds are not available from the public purse.

    3. Helping other charitable organisations – to support places and initiatives dedicated to helping children with severe epilepsy.

    We are currently fundraising for two main projects:

    1. Epilepsy Alarms

    2. The Muir Maxwell Centre for Childhood Epilepsy Research
