This is BEA’s online community for people that have epilepsy and their carers. It includes chat and discussion forums, e-mail, diary of events and a search facility for members. This facility is also used to collate information to form an anonymous database which will provide the world’s first automatic data bank on epilepsy. This will be used to create better services and treatment for epilepsy. One in 130 people in the UK has epilepsy – making it the second most common neurological condition after migraine.
British Epilepsy Association (BEA) was set up in 1950, and since then the Association has changed dramatically, but our aim is still the same – to raise awareness of epilepsy. In recent years BEA has been involved with campaigns to: Change driving law Bring in guidelines for education authorities when dealing with children with epilepsy Provide cheaper and fairer insurance schemes and many more.
