NCYPE visit

It was great to spend the morning at the National Centre for Young People with Epilepsy in Lingfield on Friday. They really have an excellent model of best practice there, and hopefully this can be adopted by schools across the UK to improve the educational experience and outcomes for the near 60,000 young people living with epilepsy. I’m also delighted to be supporting their Champions for Childhood Epilepsy Campaign and have already brought it up in Parliament in an attempt to highlight to a wider audience the great work they do. I’m planning to pop in again during the summer to see more – it’s always great to see people who know what it takes to improve the lives of those who face difficult challenges every day.
