Epilepsy Ireland's new Strategic Plan for the next five years has been published.

Officially launched by Ireland Rugby Head Coach Joe Schmidt this week, the Plan has been developed over an 18-month period with input from a wide range of stakeholders, including Epilepsy Ireland members, service users, volunteers, health professionals and staff.

Over the next five years, we aim to protect and maintain existing services and activities, while also developing in new directions to ensure we continue to meet the needs of people with epilepsy and their families in Ireland.

We have identified six Strategic Aims which together form the framework for the Plan. These are:

Built into the six Strategic Aims are 21 Strategic Objectives that we will endeavour to meet during the five year period of the plan, subject to suitable funding streams becoming available and being maintained.

Some of the key themes contained in the plan include:

Our Plan is ambitious and many challenges lie ahead, particularly in resourcing our 21 objectives but with the support of existing and potential funders; our members, volunteers and fundraisers; the wider epilepsy community and the general public, we believe that we can continue to work towards a society in which no person's life is limited by epilepsy.
