Help us make a life changing impact

A diagnosis of epilepsy is life-changing and can have a major impact on a person’s quality of life. It affects their independence, social and employment opportunities and relationships, not to mention the anxiety and stress over living with the constant threat of a life-threatening seizure. Epilepsy doesn’t discriminate – it can happen to you or me, or someone in our family, regardless of age or background. Sadly, a huge number of the approximately 250,000 Australians with epilepsy are children, teenagers and young adults.

As the oldest and largest provider of quality services, Epilepsy Action Australia is there to care, support and provide hope to those diagnosed with the condition, as well as their families and friends. But we can’t continue to do this without your help. We rely heavily on the generous support of the public to fund not only our services but research into better ways to treat the condition and manage seizures.

We promise your donation will make a difference

Every aspect of Epilepsy Action Australia’s work is focused on helping those with epilepsy, their families, and the healthcare professionals, teachers and community workers who support them. Our promise to you is that your generous gift will be carefully invested and make a direct difference to individuals who have epilepsy by funding essential services, self-management programs, training courses, public awareness and medical research.

You can help us change lives by:

  • making a tax-deductible donation
  • becoming a regular giver through monthly donations
  • leaving a lasting legacy by making a bequest in your will
  • asking family and friends to donate to us in lieu of gifts
  • workplace giving.
