Epilepsy Action awards

Epilepsy Action awards

If you want to celebrate the work that your school does to support children with epilepsy, then nominate it for an “Edward”, an award run by Epilepsy Action to recognise educational establishments that “go that extra mile” to help pupils with epilepsy.

The winning local nursery, school, college or university will train staff and pupils in first aid, hold myth-busting assemblies and introduce buddy systems for children with epilepsy.

The closing date for entries is April 15 and award winners will be notified by April 24. The awards will be presented during national epilepsy week, May 17-23.
