  • Making Contact with people needing help and advice, through clinics or within the community
  • Giving advice and information about epilepsy and the services and support available
  • Overcoming problems being experienced by people with epilepsy, because of their epilepsy
  • Establishing networks of contacts in the voluntary and statutory care sectors
  • Raising awareness in the general public, care workers, teachers, employers etc., about epilepsy and its effects
  • Promoting Support Groups of the families and carers of people with epilepsy
