Employers and Communities
We believe that every person living with epilepsy should:
– feel safe and connected, in their community, through their network
– should get a good education, one which allows them to reach their potential and secure the job of their choice
– keep the job of their choice no matter when a diagnosis is made
If your workplace or community organisation interacts with the general public it is your responsibility to ensure a safe work environment for everyone. Research shows us that 1% of the population are living with active epilepsy and 4% of the population will experience a seizure in their life time, it is highly likely therefore that at some time your workplace will come into contact with a staff member, client or someone from the general public who is living with epilepsy.
