In raising awareness of epilepsy to increase the public understanding of the condition, the most powerful thing can often be a simple, personal story. That is why we require media volunteers - people who are willing and able to communicate their experience with epilepsy to others. This could be a lived experience through having epilepsy or through your relationship with a family member or loved one who has the condition.
Epilepsy is an individual condition and it is only through individuals that we can showcase this fact. In the vast majority of the campaigns we conduct, our media volunteers will be to forefront. If you feel confident to tell your story in a public setting - be it on radio, TV or in print, or even on our own social media channels, please do get in touch with our Advocacy & Communications Manager, Paddy McGeoghegan on firstname.lastname@example.org and he will assist you in telling your story.
A media volunteer form is available for download at the end of this page or you can just get in touch with Paddy and he will send you one directly. We look forward to raising awareness with you!
