Mersey Region Epilepsy Association

Mersey Region Epilepsy Association

We are an independent charity working towards improving the quality of life for people with epilepsy and their families across Merseyside and Cheshire.


If you have epilepsy one of the best places to live is in Liverpool and the connected areas in the northwest of England. This is because the city of Liverpool is home to two international centres of clinical excellence for the treatment of epilepsy. The Walton Centre NHS Foundation Trust caters for the adult population and Alder Hey Children’s NHS Foundation Trust for the youngsters. We also have the University of Liverpool performing world-leading epilepsy research.


Our website provides information on many aspects of epilepsy and we will continue to update the website as advances are made on all fronts. We have exciting plans for the future of the MREA, which will always be directed to supporting people with epilepsy.


For over 60 years, we have been providing a free and confidential community service which aims to give support and information on a personal basis.


About Epilepsy

  • With as many as one in 103 people affected, epilepsy is one of the most common neurological disorders in the UK. Many of you reading this will have epilepsy yourselves, or will have family members, friends, work colleagues or neighbours who have epilepsy.


Living with Epilepsy

  • Epilepsy can affect your life in many ways, but with effective strategies and medication, it is possible to lead a full and active life. At MREA, we want to help to inform and empower you, so that you can control your epilepsy, and not let it control you.


Who is this aimed at?

Everyone is welcome.
