Notts County Foundation’s Epilepsy Hub returns in 2022

Notts County Foundation is delighted to announce the return of its innovative Epilepsy Hub, which aims to provide 18-35-year-olds living with epilepsy across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire with a safe, supportive, and non-judgemental space to meet likeminded people, create new relationships, and discuss their experiences with the condition.

Held on the first and third Friday of each month between 11am-1pm at the Portland Centre, the sessions look to improve the physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing of participants, develop self-esteem, and promote independence through increased levels of exercise and social activities.

Venetia Sanders, Head of Commercial at Notts County Foundation, said: “We are incredibly proud to have launched this innovative new Epilepsy Hub at the Portland Centre. There are roughly 600,000 people living with epilepsy in the UK, and it’s crucial that we take the time to learn more about the condition and how it effects the lives of people in our local community on a daily basis.

Sessions will comprise of a wellbeing swimming session between 11am-12pm, with access to the Portland Centre’s recently refurbished gym and other social spaces being available between 12pm-1pm.

Venetia added: “We wanted to create a unique environment that both encourages young people to feel more confident and also meet other people within their local area that they may not have had the opportunity to do so otherwise.”

The first session will take place on Friday 7th January, with following sessions highlighted below.
