Charity Tandem Skydive with Epilepsy Research UK
Epilepsy Research UK is the only national organisation exclusively dedicated to funding research into all areas of epilepsy. We give priority to those areas which have the potential to produce results in immediate problem areas with the aim of identifying new means to control the condition and ultimately to find a cure. Every project we fund is rigorously assessed by a panel of experts to ensure that it has the potential to advance our understanding of the condition to lead to improvements in the treatment and care of those with epilepsy.
Even with control of seizures, life for people with epilepsy can be unpredictable and restricted. Over 600,000 people in the UK have a diagnosis of epilepsy, 87 people are newly diagnosed every day and over 1,100 people die each year as a result of epilepsy, yet the condition receives little publicity and even less research funding.
Epilepsy Research UK is entirely dependent upon donations to fund research and it is only through the extraordinary dedication shown by supporters to fundraise on our behalf that we are able to increase the amount of research funded.
