International Epilepsy Day - Community Resource Officer Events

While upcoming days like International Epilepsy Day and Purple Day are very important in raising awareness of the condition that binds us all amongst the wider public, every single day is an awareness day for our dedicated Community Resource Officers through the events they hold and the services they provide for people with epilepsy, their families and their wider communities.

That being said, a number of our Community Resource Officers have events scheduled for your area on International Epilepsy Day itself or on the week of International Epilepsy Day so why not see if you can go along and learn more about your condition or so you can meet others in a similar situation.
