Epilepsy Awareness for Organisations and Charities 



Learn how to support someone who has epilepsy 

Epilepsy Training 

Effective prevention and management of seizures are vital in providing support to individuals with epilepsy. Equip yourself with the knowledge and skills needed to provide valuable aid and guidance, ensuring a safer and more informed environment for those living with epilepsy. 

What is Epilepsy Training? 

Epilepsy affects an estimated 50 million individuals worldwide, ranking among the most prevalent neurological conditions globally. Despite its frequency, epilepsy's impact extends beyond its commonality, causing three times more premature deaths than the average population. The lack of awareness in supporting individuals during and after seizures contributes significantly to these statistics. 
The World Health Organisation suggests that about 70% of epilepsy cases could be seizure-free with proper diagnosis and treatment. Dating back to 4000 BC, epilepsy is one of the world's oldest recorded conditions. 
The Leicestershire Training Team acknowledges the conditions significance and the importance of epilepsy training. Our focus is to raise awareness and equip individuals to provide essential support, reducing the potential harm during and after a seizure. 
Join us in empowering communities and fostering understanding about epilepsy for improved management and support.
