Epilepsy Niagara provides non-medical support services; we do not have physicians on staff, do not give medical advice, nor do we presribe any sort of medication. Our services and programs are for anyone of any age, race, religion, creed, or sexuality.
Our organization is committed to creating and maintaining a positive and safe environment free of workplace violence, domestic violence and workplace harassment in any form. We hold firm a very strict zero tolerance policy for this, which is why we ask participants to sign anti-violece agreements for each program. It is important for our staff, volunteers, clients, participants and hosts to feel safe and free of threat of physical, mental or emotional harm. If this is violated, the offender will be removed from the agency and/or program and will not be able to participate in the future.
