every Family Counts

Joining DSUK is easy and just takes a few minutes of your time. We ask you to complete an online registration form, which allows you to create a personalised profile with us. 

If you are a parent or carer you will need to have a copy of the diagnosis letter for your son or daughter, or the person that you care for, available to upload when prompted. As there are many different forms of SCN1A epilepsy, the diagnosis letter you upload, does need to specifically state Dravet Syndrome as the diagnosis, be from a healthcare professional and also include the child/adult's name and date of birth. 

Sharing these details will help us to understand your and your family’s needs better and to provide the support that you need. We will only ever use your data and your permissions for activities related to the running of DSUK, its website, fundraising activities and services.
