Epilepsy and Epileptics Support Groups

This section of ABLEize provides you with a broad selection of epilepsy support groups throughout the UK.  Find a range of support, information, training and resources including invaluable first aid training sessions and a range of social activities.  Find a support group near you with meeting times and helpline contacts. While we were building this section we were surprised to find how few epilepsy support groups there are in the UK.

ABLEize has attempted to give you as much information as possible and hope that you find what you’re looking for by entering any of the websites located below.  If you discover a dedicated epilepsy support site that is not listed below please drop us an email and we will look at getting it listed.
