Learn More Information About Epilepsy



Epilepsy New Zealand is the leading charity which tackles discrimination and stigma facing many people with epilepsy throughout New Zealand. We offer every kiwi employer a Best Practice Certificate for aligning best practice policy if an employee develops or has epilepsy. Our certificate acknowledges organisations which follow current employment relations and disability employment legislation.

Even if no employee has epilepsy at the moment, you can still apply for a Best Practice Certificate. It shows your organisation has policies and procedures in place for recruiting and supporting someone with this common neurological condition.

One person in 100 within New Zealand lives with epilepsy and six people per day are diagnosed with epilepsy. By displaying this certificate, your organisation raises awareness and shows it is ready to help people with this common condition

If you can tick all the legal requirements listed on our Employment Best Practice Certificate Application request showing commitment to Employment Best Practice then send the completed form to national@epilepsy.org.nz or post to Epilepsy Association of New Zealand, PO Box 1074, Hamilton 3240

We will register you on our database to keep you updated and send you a certificate to display to public FREE of CHARGE.
