We have published our Annual Report for 2023. 

The report outlines our activities throughout 2023 and how we continued our work towards a society where no person’s life is limited by epilepsy.

The report shows how 2023 was an incredibly busy year for our organisation with just under 20,000 contacts with our support & information services; 2,791 professionals trained in Epilepsy Awareness and the administration of Buccal Midazolam; and several new service developments introduced such as Teen Time, Young Adult Meet-Up as well as the introduction of our e-learning app, EpiLearn.

There was also several notable highlights across the year which are outlined in the report, including the commitment to introduce an expanded Free Travel scheme for those medically unfit to drive; the introduction of deferred examinations for those who experience medical emergencies during Leaving Cert exams; Epilepsy Ireland playing a leading role in the hosting of the International Epilepsy Congress in Dublin; and Epilepsy Ireland’s total investment in epilepsy research surpassing €1.5 million.

The report also highlights the support of our members, supporters and volunteers who have and continue to be at the forefront of our work in terms of awareness and fundraising. Without this incredible support, much of the work and achievements in 2023 would not have been possible.

We would like to thank everyone who supported the work of Epilepsy Ireland throughout 2023, and we hope that you will continue to support us in the years to come. You can show your support by making a vital donation via the button below.

Thank you once again to everyone who has and continues to support our work and together, we can achieve a society where no person’s life is limited by epilepsy.
