National Epilepsy Society is seeking volunteers

The Epilepsy Society ( previously the NSE) is on the lookout for volunteers to help inform people about epilepsy in Bristol and the surrounding area.  

The Epilepsy society runs an information network, distributing information and giving support to people with epilepsy, their families, carers and others in the community.  If you are interested in joining Bristol team call Brenda Willis on 01803 882535 or email her at brenda.willis@epilepsysociety.org.uk.You don’t need knowledge of epilepsy as volunteers receive training. You just need to be a good listener, keen to help, enjoy meeting people and are happy to learn new skills.

The Epilepsy Society is also searching for people to help with its schools awareness programme. Trained volunteers spend time talking to pupils and staff about epilepsy – so if you can see yourself providing information at hospitals or clinics or visiting schools please get in touch.
