Epilepsy Care Group (Singapore) (ECG) is a voluntary welfare organization and a registered charity established to provide non-medical services and support to children and adults affected by epilepsy and their caregivers. Epilepsy is a chronic medical condition characterized by a tendency to recurrent seizures. It is a condition with worldwide prevalence.

MISSION STATEMENT

We seek to promote awareness, concerning epilepsy and to provide epilepsy related education and counselling to persons with epilepsy, their family members and to the public.

PHILOSOPHY

Persons with epilepsy should be treated as a group of persons who have an illness but who, for the most part can lead normal, productive and fulfilling lives. They should be able to say ‘I have epilepsy’ without being rejected or discriminated against.

OBJECTIVES
• To educate persons with epilepsy, their caregivers and the public about epilepsy.
• To provide opportunities and activities for meaningful social integration for persons with epilepsy and their caregivers.
• To advance the cause and interests of persons with epilepsy in Singapore.
• To provide social and emotional support for persons with epilepsy.
