Welcome to ‘Positive Action’, your latest round up of how your donations, subscriptions and support are making a difference for people living with epilepsy!
In this edition you can read about the success of Purple Day, as well as the ways that we’re raising awareness together and helping more people locally.

Epilepsy Awareness in Parliament
The All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Epilepsy is an informal group of MPs and Peers from all parties who have an interest in epilepsy.
Epilepsy Action is now responsible for setting up meetings of this group. We also provide administrative support and make sure the group is working in the best interests of people with epilepsy.
This year Epilepsy Action and the APPG on Epilepsy hosted a drop-in session for MPs on Purple Day. The group has also discussed the challenges people with epilepsy face with Personal Independence Payments.
Thanks to your support, we’ve been able to keep up epilepsy awareness in Parliament and beyond.
The next APPG event will look at epilepsy-related deaths. The event will include contributions from senior neurologists as we explore what action can be taken to address this vital issue.
You can keep up with the work of the APPG through the Epilepsy Action website
