National Centre for Young People with Epilepsy (NCYPE)
The National Centre for Young People with Epilepsy (NCYPE) is a national charity which changes the lives of children and young people with epilepsy. With over 100 years' experience in the education, treatment and care of young people with the condition, we already make a big difference to the 200 students attending our residential special school and further education college. However our job doesn't end there. There are 60,000 children and young people under 18 with epilepsy in the UK. They and their families have to battle the condition, which can affect learning and behaviour, as well as fighting low self esteem and high social exclusion. Their difficult situation is compounded by diagnosis and treatment which varies in quality across the NHS, and support from schools which unfortunately is often inadequate. We are creating better futures for young people with epilepsy - your support will help make it happen!
