Epilepsy Action Northern Ireland

Epilepsy Action Northern Ireland

In Northern Ireland approximately 20,000 people have epilepsy. Epilepsy can affect anyone at any age and from any walk of life.  We provide information, advice and support on living with epilepsy. Our Epilepsy Helpline and on-line support are one-to-one services that people with epilepsy and those who care for them have called a lifeline. At the same time, local branches and events support people in their own communities. Epilepsy can be an isolating condition, so this support network for people with epilepsy, carers and families, can make all the difference.


Epilepsy Action Northern Ireland

  • Raises awareness and increases understanding of epilepsy
  • Lobbies and campaigns for a better future for people with epilepsy
  • Supports people through our network of volunteers, branches and groups

Epilepsy Action Northern Ireland provides epilepsy awareness training sessions to groups who want to learn more about epilepsy. These include private employers, healthcare and service providers and schools.
