National Epilepsy Support Service open six days a week

Our Support Team is available six days a week to provide advice, information, and assistance to people living with epilepsy and their families.

The National Epilepsy Support Service (1300 761 487) operates Monday to Saturday, 9.00am – 7.00pm.

Our Support Team can speak with you about how epilepsy affects health, well-being and daily living issues, incorporating person-centered self-management strategies.

The Support Team can provide:

  • advice and information about epilepsy
  • advice about risk management and living well with epilepsy
  • individualised support for people living with epilepsy who require assistance with accessing supports and community resources
  • development of tailored Epilepsy Management Plans.

The NESS is free to access and is available to anyone. No referral is required. 

The team can also refer you to Epilepsy Support Workers to help you find out about local support, activities and events for people living with epilepsy.  

We are also a registered NDIS provider. While we cannot provide support coordination services, we can assist with the development of epilepsy management plans and epilepsy training.

We can arrange interpreting services for clients from non-English speaking backgrounds.
