The support group is for anyone affected by epilepsy in the region. Anyone aged 18 or over is welcome to come along, including parents of young children with epilepsy. The meetings are unsuitable for children themselves.
Our meetings are very informal and are intended to provide a meeting point for those affected by epilepsy to share experiences and even make new friends, to remove any feeling of social isolation. We meet at the Tyneside Cinema in the city centre in the Headspace Room (3rd floor) on the second Thursday of the month (except April and August) from 6.30-8pm. Please visit our branch calendar for precise dates and unexpected changes.
- The closest metro station is the Monument.
- Many bus services stop directly outside and nearby the cinema, and the Haymarket Bus Station and Eldon Square Bus Station are both in walking distance.
- The Oxford Multistorey is nearby and is free after 5pm.
