Notts County Foundation is delighted to announce the launch of its brand-new 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 Thursday of each month between 7:30-9:30pm 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 social activity.
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. 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 Thursday 4 November, followed by Thursday 18 November, Thursday 2 December, and Thursday 16 December. For more information about Notts County Foundation’s Epilepsy Hub, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
