I believe epilepsy is a hidden disability as there is contribution to such not only from the condition itself but also from the wide variety of factors such as restriction on the type of employment, driving and side effects of the drugs.

By joining the charity, I shall be able to provide guidance, support in educational activity by attending charity venues, providing guidance on online tools in monitoring the condition & raising issues with local councils which is pertinent for patients and their carers.
