Epilepsy Connections was formed in April 2000 to provide information and support to people with epilepsy. It is a company limited by guarantee and registered in Scotland. It is also recognised as a Scottish Charity.
The charity’s principal objectives were, and continue to be:
- Developing and delivering a range of community-based information and support services to people with epilepsy, their families, friends and carers and the professionals who work with them.
- Raising awareness of the diversity and complexity of epilepsy needs and working with statutory, voluntary and independent agencies to address those needs.
- Involving epilepsy service users in the processes of planning and delivering services and in the monitoriing and evaluation of those services.
