Tourette Scotland was formed in 1994. Formerly known as 'The Scottish Tourette Syndrome Support Group', it was started to fill a gap in support for TS sufferers in Scotland. Many people felt that it was impractical, not to mention expensive, to travel to London for meetings with fellow sufferers. http:/

The national voice for epilepsy in Scotland
In Scotland 54,000 people live with epilepsy. Children and older people are most at risk of developing this common serious neurological condition but anyone can develop epilepsy at any time, and 8 people a day in Scotland do. We want to make sure the needs of people with epilepsy are met. This is why we campaign for improved healthcare, better information provision and an end to stigma. In April 2008 Enlighten, Tackling Epilepsy merged with Epilepsy Scotland.
We provide information, advice and support to help people with diabetes manage the condition well, and bring people together for support when it’s needed most.
