Charity conferences


Weekend National Conference

SUDEP Action holds a National Conference each year, an event which is open to all our bereaved families.  For 2017, we have shaped the programme to not only include sessions with leading experts, but to also allow for valuable time and space for chatting and sharing experiences. If you have not been before, you will hear all about the cause that we share and be with people who all understand. There is no need for explanation and no pressure to say or do. There will be time for questions and time with the SUDEP Action team. 

We also have plenty of exciting charity news to share, in particular about our projects and the important 2017 appeal.

Where and when?

Friday 9 June (pm) to Sunday 11 June 2017 (am)
Woodland Grange, Leamington Spa

“I wasn’t sure what to expect, but the informal atmosphere was very reassuring. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming and we met some lovely people. It was also very interesting to hear all about the work that SUDEP Action is doing and what the charity’s aims are. We will look forward to coming to next year’s conference.”
