National Epilepsy Week

National Epilepsy Week (NEW) 2017 – 14-20 May 2017

We mark National Epilepsy Week in various ways each year.  2016 saw us asking our newly elected MSPs to pledge their support to us, 2015 we focussed on “transforming lives” and in 2014 we looked at the “many faces of epilepsy”.  In 2017 we want to raise awareness of epilepsy and you can help!  


You can join us and add your voice to our Thunderclap.   Also watch out for our social media takeover, and get a glimpse into how things work at Epilepsy Scotland with posts from our Chief Executive, Policy Team, Training, Fundraising, Edinburgh Youth and Family Service, Lighthouse Service, and the Contact Team!


Are you planning your own event?

We would like to hear from anyone planning their own event to raise awareness during this week.  Don't forget to take photos and send them to us at  or share them on social media.   We appreciate every one of our supporters and all your fund-raising efforts, with huge thanks to our volunteers raising money at Glasgow Central Station on Wednesday, 17 May.   Pop by and say hello.
