In the past 21 years, over 21,000 people with epilepsy have died suddenly and died too young
What is Prevent21?
SUDEP Action’s Prevent21 campaign shines a light on this shocking disaster bringing it out of the shadows and to the public’s attention.
"Every one of the 21 people who died this week is worth fighting for. Helping people take action to save lives now, and in the future – is part of our DNA. Join us in this life- saving campaign."
Jane Hanna OBE, SUDEP Action CEO
We helped 11,000 people last year.
With YOUR help, we can speed up what needs to happen over the next four years of this campaign:
Targeting cause and prevention of deaths
Support our dedicated programme of research and surveillance that brings knowledge to save lives now by shining a light on key risk factors, conversations, and actions. As well as, contributing to research to help in the near future - including a wearable alert.
Keeping people safe now
Changing more hearts and minds to include risk and tackle sudden deaths in the young. Bringing vital knowledge to support life-saving conversations. Reaching GPs, ambulance crews and other professionals with up to date training and tools from an expert UK faculty, as well as reaching the wider public.
Helping Families after a death
Families tell us our rapid support information after a death and ongoing support, is a life-line. Bereavement counselling, supporting advocacy and helping families grieve however they choose to be involved.
