Epilepsy is a common serious neurological condition that affects 55,000 people in Scotland. We are here for anyone with the condition, their families, carers and employers. We campaign for improved healthcare and an end to stigma, we influence policies that will affect the health, educational and social welfare of people with epilepsy and we provide quality information, support and award-winning services.
Epilepsy Scotland works with people living with epilepsy to ensure that their voice is heard.
We believe that people living with epilepsy have a right to:
be free from stigma and discrimination
have access to high quality medical, social, educational, support and information services
be valued and included in society
determine their own way of life
We fight discrimination and stigma experienced by people with epilepsy
We influence public policy to achieve best practice for people living with epilepsy
We work to ensure that appropriate services and support are available
We sustain an effective, supportive and financially secure organisation
