Over the years, Epilepsy Ireland have been grateful to gain the support of some fantastic companies by becoming their charity partner. This is a vital source of funding for our work. With approximately nearly 40,000 people living with epilepsy across the country, it is likely that there is someone within your workplace or company that either have the condition or know someone who has been affected by it.
As partners, we love to use the opportunity to offer your team training on epilepsy awareness and seizure first aid, and we would love to benefit from your staff’s professional expertise to contribute to our work. Each partnership will be tailor-made to suit you and your company, but here are some examples of the opportunities available when partnering with us:
- Epilepsy Awareness training provided by one of our specialist Community Resource Officers. Each member of your staff will be awarded with a personalised degree in Epilepsy Awareness!
- Work with company staff to create an Employers Guide to Epilepsy, a standardised staff handbook outlining what to do in the event an employee with epilepsy undergoes a seizure in the workplace
- Take part in our annual flagship campaigns such as Purple Day and Rose Week by: hosting an event in your office; leveraging specific marketing, IT, communications or PR skills within the organisation; and playing a key role in the organisation of these campaigns by nominating staff to sit on our campaign committee.
A corporate partner has a profound impact on our work, allowing us to continue to provide vital services, advocate on behalf of people living with epilepsy, spread awareness through national training programs, and fund Irish research. Employees will get meaningful insight on then impact they have and will work closely with our team.
If you would like to nominate us as a charity partner for your company please email Stephen at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about how we could work together towards a society where no person’s life is limited by their epilepsy.
