One of the most common questions we get asked here at Epilepsy Alarms relates to funding. Many parents and carers are in real need of epilepsy sensors for their children, yet they need assistance for funding.
For this reason, Epilepsy Alarms have teamed up with Epilepsy Lifestyle, a small yet dynamic charity based in Eastbourne. Run by Marie Baker, alongside fellow Trustees Ian Kirkwan and Fiona Porter-Kitson, Epilepsy Lifestyle aims to provide both children and adults with solutions to improve their quality of life.
Whilst there are a few Charities that provide grants to children, Epilepsy Lifestyle is the only Charity offering services to both children and adults.
Through our partnership, Epilepsy Lifestyle are willing to consider grant requests for the Brio, Alert it Mini and Alert-it Companion, which are three of our most requested seizure monitors. To get your grant under consideration you must be able to:
1. Provide evidence of entitlement to Child Tax Credits or Income Support.
2. Provide a copy of a letter conﬁrming their epilepsy diagnosis or the epilepsy diagnosis of the child they are applying on behalf of.
Please note beneﬁciaries are limited to just one monitor/sleeping solution and the team at Epilepsy Lifestyle will work with you and Epilepsy Alarms to ensure the correct form of monitor solution is granted.
If your grant is successful, then Epilepsy Alarms will dispatch the agreed equipment direct to you. We will also provide any ongoing technical and customer support if needed.
Marie Baker said of the partnership with Epilepsy Alarms, “We are delighted to be working alongside Epilepsy Alarms to help families right across the UK.” She added, “having a broader range of equipment will mean we can help even more families over the coming months and years”.
Stewart Smith from Epilepsy Alarms commented, “Funding can be a real issue for many parents, so we are thrilled to have teamed up with Epilepsy Lifestyle. They perform a brilliant work and we are looking forward to helping many families get some peace of mind through our seizure monitor range.”
