Epilepsy Futures – a fresh start for adults with epilepsy.

 

Epilepsy Connections is delighted to announce the award of a Big Lottery Fund grant to support our exciting new project, Epilepsy Futures.

Epilepsy Connections’ Executive Director Shirley Maxwell said, “Epilepsy can be a difficult condition to live with. It can affect your health, your education, work opportunities, where you live and how you feel about yourself. It can leave you feeling that you’re not in control of your life, isolated, and unable to take advantage of opportunities that others take for granted. Our new project, Epilepsy Futures, will give adults who define themselves in terms of epilepsy and seizures the chance to see themselves and their lives differently. Epilepsy Futures will support people to find the best way for them of managing and improving their wellbeing. Taking part will also help people build their resilience, find new interests and make new friends.”

“The project will be open to adults aged 18 or over with epilepsy who can travel to Epilepsy Connections’ city centre office to take part. A programme of activities delivered by Epilepsy Connections’ staff, volunteers  – people with epilepsy themselves – and partner agencies will run for 3 days per week.  We’re offering courses on epilepsy self-management, managing mental health, confidence building, healthy lifestyles, and budgeting as a starting point. After that, there will be support to access other local learning and social opportunities, including college courses, going to the gym, walking groups, gardening  – whatever you want to have a go at, we’ll work with you to try and make it happen.  To get the best out of Epilepsy Futures, we’re asking people to sign up for 6 months. At the end of that time, people will feel more in control of their lives and better connected to their communities.”

“We want to say a big Thank You to players of the National Lottery for helping to bring positive, lasting change to people with epilepsy in Scotland.”

Big Lottery Fund Scotland Chair, Maureen McGinn, said: “I am delighted that Epilepsy Connections has been successful in securing a Big Lottery Fund grant. The funding will make a big difference where it is needed most and I wish Epilepsy Connections every success as it goes on to develop and expand its service for the benefit of people affected by epilepsy”.

 

Epilepsy Futures will get off the ground as soon as possible. Our first step is to recruit a Project Coordinator and we’re advertising the post on our jobs page, online and in the press now. In the meantime, if you’d like to register interest in Epilepsy Futures, please phone the office on 0141 248 4125 or email info@epilepsyconnections.org.uk
