About ECG

Epilepsy Care Group (Singapore) [ECG] is a non-profit, volunteer-based organization that began in 1993 as an effort to address the needs of persons with epilepsy and their caregivers in Singapore. We are a registered society (ROS 226/95 Wel) under the Societies Act, which means that we are accountable to the Registrar of Societies and have a Constitution that mandates an Annual General Meeting at which ECG members elect an Executive Council. The work of the Executive Council is assisted by various medical and legal professionals who sit on a Board of Consultants. The ECG is also recognized as a charity (CA1204) under the Charities Act by the Commissioner of Charities. The Ministry of Health therefore has an account (HEF0043/G) in our name under the Health Endowment Fund to receive tax-exempt donations.

We are also affiliated to The International Bureau for Epilepsy (IBE) which is a world-wide chain of organizations working to improve the social conditions that affect people with epilepsy.
