Quarriers Epilepsy Community Outreach runs epilepsy support groups throughout Grampian and Fife. Anyone living with epilepsy is welcome, whether you experience epilepsy yourself or are caring for or supporting someone with the condition.
As well as mutual support and advice the groups often arrange speakers, social events and outings at other times depending on what the group agrees they would like to do. Examples include bowling, picnics, walks, snooker, swimming, and at times, more adventurous activities such as rock wall climbing.
The groups arrange fundraising activities which are a great way to have fun as well as getting together to raise awareness of epilepsy.
Groups meet regularly as detailed below but please get in touch to confirm details as venues may change due to activities. If attending for the first time is daunting, your Epilepsy Outreach worker can make arrangements with you to make it easier.
Family Support Groups
Parents and Carers can feel very isolated and alone caring for a child or young person living with epilepsy. Having others to talk to and share stories and experiences can be a great support. Please get in touch with Norma Crawford for further information.
