Epilepsy Action is a charity made up of individual members.
Every year the members elect people to be the trustees of the charity. The trustees are the people who look after the charity.
The name we give to all the trustees together is the ‘Council of Management’, or just ‘Council’ for short.
The name we give to individual trustees is ‘Council member’. Since the Association is a limited company, Council members are also company directors.
As an Epilepsy Action member, you’ll enjoy lots of special benefits.
In 2021, over 2,500 people took advantage of our new virtual group service, and the quality of our advice and information was recognised with the Patient Information Forum PIF Tick award.
