Youth project - Epilepsy Scotland

Epilepsy can be tough on children and young people.  Connecting with others who also have epilepsy can make a young person feel less alone and may help overcome isolation, low confidence and low self-esteem.

If your child is aged 11-20, they are welcome to join our Edinburgh or Glasgow based youth groups.  We organise regular social activities and go on various trips together, including our annual summer camp.

Attending our youth group can be life changing:

“The youth group means the world to me.  If it was not for the youth group then I wouldn’t have somewhere where I can be myself and not worry about getting bullied.  The youth group is somewhere where I feel safe and secure where I can go if I have something on my mind.”

Our experienced youth workers can also provide one to one support to a child or young person.
