Details

This informal small group drop-in session is an opportunity to talk with volunteers and others affected by epilepsy. The accredited volunteers have been trained by Epilepsy Action to provide advice and information about many aspects of living with the condition, both as a patient and carer. If we can’t answer a query directly we hope to be able to direct you to someone who can help you. However, we cannot give specific medical advice – you will need to speak to your doctor, specialist nurse or consultant.
Through the drop-in sessions you can meet other people in a similar situation and compare experiences if you wish.

Epilepsy Action is the UK’s largest epilepsy membership organisation, aiming to support the 600,000 people across the country with the condition, as well as educating the wider public and helping to break down the stigma that still exists about epilepsy.
In the Sheffield area, our local branch acts as a support group to people with epilepsy, their families and friends, as well as leading in informing and educating the public about the condition.
Our regular monthly meetings are where people affected by epilepsy can meet, find mutual support and basic advice about epilepsy in a friendly group.
We aim to provide an opportunity for people to discuss any concerns they have in a way they find comfortable.

There is an opportunity to get involved in the work of the charity, if you wish. Everybody is welcome who is affected by epilepsy, either directly or indirectly or just has an interest in the condition.

“We want to live in a society where everyone understands epilepsy and where attitudes towards people with epilepsy are based on fact not fiction”
