Unfortunately Epilepsy WA does not receive any state government funding, instead solely relying upon public donations to provide essential epilepsy support services for the 1 in 25 who will be diagnosed with epilepsy and their loved ones.
Epilepsy WA was founded in 1963 and provides the widest array of epilepsy support services for the WA community, including a network of monthly support groups, a free seizure-alert bed mat loan program, epilepsy training, patient/carer seminars, a compassionate ear listening service, a seizure technology display and awareness-raising activities. Epilepsy WA’s office is conveniently located near to Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital and Perth Children’s Hospital in Nedlands. Unfortunately we don’t receive any WA state government funding and so rely solely upon public donations.
Due to a lack of WA state government funding we are only able to offer a reduced number of support groups: Joondalup, Nedlands, Armadale, Midland and Bunbury, and an online service.
