HISTORY

The first offices of Epilepsy Scotland opened in 1954 in Glasgow. The focus was to establish an information and advisory center for people with epilepsy and their carers. In the more than 60 years since this charity has been operating, they have branched out the services and support that they provide, and have expanded to other locations as well.

EPILEPSY & THE CHARITY TODAY

In Scotland 55,000 people are affected by epilepsy.  Children and older people are most at risk of developing this common serious neurological condition but anyone can develop epilepsy at any time, and eight people a day in Scotland do.

Epilepsy Scotland aims to make sure that the needs of people with epilepsy are met.  Also, their campaign is aiming to achieve improved healthcare, better information provision and an end to stigma.

The charity describes their mission as working with people living with epilepsy to ensure that their voices are heard. They wish to act against stigma of the condition and help people be more valued and included into today’s society. Providing  access to high quality medical, social, educational, support and information services is also part of their vision.
