Epilepsy SA was established in 1967 as the South African National Epilepsy League (SANEL). It is the only national organisation in South Africa offering specialised and
comprehensive services to persons with and affected by epilepsy. Our aim is to enhance and improve the quality of life of our target group.
The organisation comprises a coordinating National Office based in Cape Town and six regional Branches: Western Cape (Cape Town and Wellington), South Cape/Karoo (Knysna), Eastern Cape (East London), Gauteng (Springs and Johanesburg), Free State & North West (Parys) and Mpumalanga & Limpopo (Dullstroom and Elandsdoorn) public more than anything else.
Epilepsy South Africa is a vigorous advocate for the realisation of the human rights of persons with epilepsy as defined in South African legislation and the United National Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD).
