A life free from epilepsy is possible.

Epilepsy Research UK is the only national charity exclusively dedicated to driving and enabling national programmes of life changing, life saving research into epilepsy.

Over 600,000 people in the UK have a diagnosis of epilepsy, that is 1 in 103. Epilepsy can take many forms from a momentary blank spell to a dramatic major convulsion. Even with control of seizures, the quality of life for people with epilepsy can be unpredictable and restricted. However, new research offers the very real possibility of developing therapies that could prevent these deaths and transform the lives of those affected.

Developments in drug therapy and medical scanning, along with major breakthroughs in the study of the human genome, mean that great progress has been made in understanding the causes of epilepsy in recent years. Even greater advances will be made in the coming years and our research will be at the forefront of developments to control, and perhaps even cure, epilepsy.

By supporting Epilepsy Research UK you will make a real difference to the lives of thousands of people.
