She received her award for her dedication to the charity, where she works to make a difference with people with epilepsy, their families and friends, professionals and colleagues.

Rachel helps to maintain the charity’s Information Standard accreditation, which offers reassurance to people about the quality of publications.

Rachel said: “I’m touched to receive this award from Epilepsy Action. Knowing that my work plays a part in improving the lives of other families affected by epilepsy is very rewarding.”

Philip Lee, chief executive at Epilepsy Action, said: “We’re delighted to acknowledge Rachel at this year’s Epilepsy Action National Volunteer Awards.

“Without the support of people like Rachel, our information and advice would not be as easy to read and understand as it is. For these reasons it is particularly pleasing to reflect her ongoing contribution with this well-deserved award.

“These awards reflect the wonderful efforts of the recipients and mark our appreciation of the tremendous work that all our volunteers undertake.”
