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. 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 & Communitcaions, Paddy McGeoghegan on email@example.com and he will assist you in telling your story.
A media volunteer form can be downloaded here and sent back to Paddy when completed. In the vast majority of the campaigns we conduct, our media volunteers will be to forefront - such as major awareness like International Epilepsy Day and Purple Day. See Megan & Ruth's stories for International Epilepsy Day 2021 and how they helped to raise awareness.
