Epilepsy Connections Australia
Services & information
The services provided by ECA include 1st party Peer Support counselling, Promotional services for other Epilepsy related organisations & listings / links to other existing support services - all with a large focus on aiding access to information on Epilepsy support, knowledge and awareness to the general community.
We are proud to offer 100% free services with no membership required, and to offer support not just to sufferers of the disease, but to those who support us - such as our loved ones, medical workers, researchers and charities that dedicate their lives to this cause. We hope that we can Connect everyone as one whole community.
There is a whole world of support and information out there at the touch of a button - but finding it can sometimes be difficult. ECA offers a way for all of these great options to be accessed in one place. We also offer support and services to patients, families and organisations.
ECA's primary mandates are:
1) To offer free Peer support counselling services worldwide
2) Give promotional support to existing Epilepsy causes
3) To provide a Connection base to existing Online Support Services & other entities (Medical / Corporate / Government etc.) assisting all aspects of Epilepsy including support & research.
4) Provide Awareness Campaigns & promote other campaigns that highlight the many issues facing the Epilepsy community.
This is a completely free service and open Foundation. We do not take any form of donation (but can provide links & advice on other valuable causes / entities that do - which we promote).
We actively discourage things like "joining" or "membership" - we simply don't require it and believe in many cases it can be a barrier in getting people to engage. We also have strict privacy policies on information given to us by any enquirer, so confidentiality is assured to anyone who engages with our Foundation.
