Gifts in Wills left to the Epilepsy Research Institute play a vital role in securing future research. Over a half of our income comes from people leaving gifts in their Wills. It’s because of their kind legacy that we are able to fund clinical research to improve treatments and therapies, and lab-based studies working to prevent epilepsy for good. But there’s still work to be done.

Once you’ve remembered your loved ones, would you consider leaving a gift in your Will to the Epilepsy Research Institute? No matter how large or small, your gift will be a lasting legacy that will support future generations to come.

Long-standing supporter Jeanette lives with epilepsy and has pledged a gift to the Epilepsy Research Institute in her Will.

“I have complete confidence that my gift will be used wisely, to further the groundbreaking research for which the charity is well known. I would like future epilepsy researchers to have funding to build on that body of work and to help decades of future patients become seizure-free.”

Gordon and Gill’s family have been greatly affected by epilepsy. In hope of a future where epilepsy can be safely controlled, they have remembered the Epilepsy Research Institute in their Will.

We look forward to a time when epilepsy has less impact on people’s lives. It means so much to us that, through a gift in our Will, we can contribute to a better future for people with epilepsy.


Writing a Will might feel daunting, so we have partnered with Will-writing providers to give you expert advice, and make sure your final wishes and your loved ones are taken care of.

For information on what to consider when making a Will see the Law Society guide here. If you don’t already have a local solicitor, you can find a solicitor in your local area using the Law Society ‘Find a Solicitor’ service here.

We’ve teamed up with The Goodwill Partnership, which offers a home-visit, online video or phone Will writing service in England and Wales. Trained counsellors will help you write your Will at a time that’s convenient for you. Your Will is then checked by one of The Goodwill Partnership’s approved solicitors and returned to you.

To book an appointment, you can call The Goodwill Partnership on 0844 669 6148 or visit their website.

If you include a gift to the Epilepsy Research Institute in your Will, we’d love to hear from you so we can thank you for your support. Let us know by calling Jo, our Head of Donor Relations, on 020 3882 9438 or emailing

As scientists we know that each increment of knowledge, every marginal gain, when added together can make big differences to the lives of people with epilepsy.
