Epilepsy Society is the UK’s only charity transforming the lives of people with epilepsy through world-leading research, advocacy and care. Our vision is to make the charity fit for the future by using our enviable legacy to push forward the boundaries of our own pioneering research and turn epilepsy on its head.

As a Trustee, you will work in partnership with the Chair and Chief Executive to ensure that the charity has a clear vision, mission and strategic direction and that the charity is focused on achieving these. Trustees help to ensure that the Trustee Board fulfils its duties and responsibilities for the proper governance of the charity. You will be responsible for upholding the values of the Society and advocating for the inclusion of people from under-represented groups, especially people with epilepsy.

Epilepsy Society is at one of the most exciting and pivotal points in its 132-year history. As a board of Trustees, we have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to revolutionise the diagnosis and treatment of people with epilepsy and offer unprecedented hope for those with uncontrolled seizures.

We are looking for Trustees who are willing to be bold, brave and determined in helping us to drive change. Trustees who understand the debilitating impact of epilepsy on a person’s life and employ their energy, passion and professional skills to enable our incredible team of researchers at our Chalfont Centre to continue to lead on and create innovative solutions for the highly personalised needs of the community.

People that are willing to do extra things and be excited and proud to make medical history.

Following our successful campaign in 2023 to welcome 5 new Trustees, we are now looking for a further 3 (to replace existing Trustees) in the following areas:

  • Care - Supported Living
  • Care - Complex Care/Residential Support
  • Research and Commercial
