National Epilepsy Week

National Epilepsy Week (NEW) 20 to 26 May 2019

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 last year we embarked on a general awareness raising campaign.  

In 2018 we started to challenge stigmas surrounding epilepsy and had some big successes, but there's more to be done and we need your help!

Through a variety of events during NEW we aim to break down the stigmas that surround epilepsy and the people affected.


Wednesday 22 May

Digby Brown Head Injury Information Day, Glasgow


Thursday 23 May

Comedy Fundraiser at the Rotunda, Glasgow


Saturday 25 & Sunday 26 May

Edinburgh Marathon Festival, Edinburgh


Sunday 26 May

Funky Natz Golf Day, Wishaw


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 efforts to make a positive change.
