Support groups & meet-ups
We facilitate support groups, social groups and meet-ups for people living with epilepsy and their parents or carers. The forming of groups is dependant on interest from people in a local area or interest and ongoing support of participants. Support groups give people a sense of community and the chance to talk with others who have or have had similar experiences. It also provides an opportunity to establish a better understanding of epilepsy. Please find current meet-up opportunities below.
While face-to-face meetings are suspended due to COVID-19, our support groups have gone online. During this difficult time, our community is more important than ever. Our weekly Zoom catch-ups will include a mix of activities based on interests of the group, conversations about different aspects of living with epilepsy and a chance to share your experiences. We also have Facebook support groups to help you connect.
