Giving Children Their Lives Back

Intractable Epilepsy destroys lives, and it is our mission to make these lives better both medically and financially, for the sufferers and their families.

Intractable is the first UK charity setup by families who have loved ones with intractable epilepsy. Our loved ones had exhausted all NHS treatments and we all ended up being thrown together after finding cannabinoid treatments. It helped our loved ones so much that we wanted to be able to provide some financial help to other families who are in the same position.

Many of these children suffer up to hundreds of devastating seizures everyday.  Nearly all have exhausted the traditional pharmaceutical anti-epileptic drugs.  Medicinal cannabis is the only medicine that really helps. Medicinal cannabis has been legal in the UK since 2018 but access on the NHS remains blocked.  So the families are having to cope with the immense strain of fundraising up to £2,000 a month to access it privately, as well as deal with the daily care of their very sick children.  Imagine if this was your child.  Please help us to help them.  Your donations will be used to help the families continue to get the medicine they so desperately need.
