Epilepsy is a common serious neurological condition where there is a tendency to have seizures that start in the brain. Epilepsy is usually only diagnosed after a person has had more than one seizure.

Each person’s experience of epilepsy is unique. In Wales approximately 32,000 people, or 1 in 94, have the condition. Public ignorance and misconceptions about epilepsy can lead to fear and prejudice. To combat this we promote awareness through events and training to ensure that epilepsy is better understood. Being informed about the condition helps reduce the impact epilepsy has on a person’s life.
