Our Mission / Objective

Epilepsy is a seizure disorder that can affect anyone at any time, regardless of age, gender, level of intelligence, culture or background. It is estimated that over 800,000 people in Australia will be diagnosed with epilepsy at some stage in life, with sadly 40% never being able to stop or control their seizures. Over 55% of Australians (13.2 million people) know someone with epilepsy, and around 65 million people are affected worldwide.

Epilepsy Action delivers innovative services that increase epilepsy awareness, understanding, knowledge and skills to assist people with epilepsy across Australia to optimise their life outcomes. Our vision is optimal living for people with epilepsy. Our team of highly qualified service co-ordinators, registered nurses and community development officers is equipped with a rich base of technical expertise, built up during five decades of services to the community.
