Epilepsy Action's Journey with Togetherly

Epilepsy Action dedicated to creating a world without limits for people in the UK with epilepsy. They provide services and support for people living with epilepsy as well as campaigning for change.


Epilepsy Action, was facing significant challenges in connecting their befriending volunteers and service users in a safe, effective, and secure way. Their early attempts to set up a new befriending service were hindered by technological barriers and concerns over maintaining confidentiality and proper use of resources.


Togetherly provided a simple and secure solution. With a central switchboard system, Togetherly ensured that neither party in the befriending service had access to each other's contact details, thereby maintaining privacy and security.

Increased Accessibility and Inclusivity

The intuitive design of the Togetherly platform removed the need for technical know-how breaking down barriers. They are now able to welcome volunteers who previously might have been hesitant due to the IT skills that were required to deliver the service. This inclusivity was crucial for Epilepsy Action, opening up to a more diverse pool of volunteers.

Enhanced Efficiency in Operations

The simplicity of Togetherly's system helped to speed up the induction training process at Epilepsy Action. There is very little training required on the technical side of making befriending calls volunteers simply dial the Togetherly number. It is also very easy for staff to add and assign volunteers with service users on the Togtherly platform.

All of which means they have been able to get volunteers through their induction quickly so they can get started supporting service users. As there are lots of people waiting to access the service getting new volunteers active as soon as possible it vital to expanding the reach of the service.

Improved User Experience

Adopting Togetherly has been a positive experience for both volunteers and service users of Epilepsy Action. It has encouraged even those nervous of technology to participate in video calls further enhancing the personal connection in the befriending service. This ease of use led to more meaningful and engaging interactions, contributing to the overall goal of alleviating loneliness and isolation among people with epilepsy.
