Our charity Epilepsy Action is seeking your help to celebrate those doing a brilliant job supporting children and young people with epilepsy.
For this, we’re asking people to nominate an outstanding local nursery, school, college or university for an Edward education award. In the UK, epilepsy affects an estimated 63,400 children and young people aged under 18 and up to half underachieve academically.
Previous Edward winners have trained staff and pupils in first aid, held myth-busting assemblies and introduced buddy systems for children with epilepsy. All these things help ensure children and young people receive the best support. They also promote awareness and understanding to enhance a pupil’s daily life.
Anyone can nominate a school or educational setting for an Edward on Epilepsy Action’s website. https://www.epilepsy.org.uk/campaigns/education/professionals/edwards-awards. The closing date is April 15th. Winners will be notified by April 24th and the awards presented during National Epilepsy Week in May. For more information visit epilepsy.org.uk/edwards or call 0113 210 8800.
