Epilepsy Scotland launch Ctrl+T campaign
Young adults with difficult epilepsy/learning difficulties need special support; Epilepsy Scotland intend to use their website to signpost help and support available for these young adults and their families/carers in each local authority and NHS board.
In a new campaign called Ctrl+T, Epilepsy Scotland will:
- Help families and young people be as prepared and informed as possible
- Ensure sufficient and appropriate information is available so timely choices can be made for the young person’s future
- Signpost the help and support available so that young adults, their families/carers are more in control.
Ctrl+T will be launched at an Epilepsy Transitions Reception at the Scottish Parliament on Wednesday, 21 September, at 6pm.
Epilepsy Scotland, on behalf of the Joint Epilepsy Council, and event sponsor Richard Simpson MSP will host this Epilepsy Transitions reception. The Cabinet Secretary for Health Wellbeing & Cities Strategy will address the meeting of over 50 guests and MSPs. There is an Any Questions, Any Answers session and a DVD case study showing one young person’s experiences in transition.
There is also the opportunity to get girly to support Epilepsy Scotland – find yourself a bargain at the LK Bennett shopping event, where you can support this great cause and also get 20% off!
