Be a media contact

Your story can help others


We are always looking for people who are willing to share their experiences of epilepsy with the media. This raises public awareness and helps us to campaign for better epilepsy services.

Being a media contact might mean talking to other people with epilepsy, to members of the Scottish Parliament (MSPs), to local or national papers, radio or even TV.

If you are interested, contact us for an informal and confidential chat.  We want to make sure you know the full implications of seeing your name and story in print and can give you hints and tips on how best to get your message across.  There is no guarantee that a newspaper will print exactly what you have said, but we do our utmost to make sure your story is accurately told. If you decide that you are not ready for this, you can still help us by allowing us to use your story in an anonymous way.

If you are interested in sharing your experiences (good or bad) with us, please get in touch with our Public Affairs Officer, Allana Parker by email: or call 0141 427 4911.
