Membership

Since the foundation of Epilepsy Ireland in 1966, we have always been a membership based organisation. This means that we are run by our members in accordance with our Constitution for the benefit of people with epilepsy and their families. While technological advances in recent years have made it easier for us all to communicate and form virtual communities, it remains vitally important that there is a strong, vibrant membership base in order to best support and represent the epilepsy community. On October 1st 2018, our new Membership options were launched. 

Please note that due to the current situation with Covid19 and with staff working from home, there will be a delay in processing memberships and issuing benefits to signed up members. Please bear with us during this challenging time - we look forward to normal service resuming as soon as possible - stay safe.

Low.ie are offering  the following to Epilepsy Ireland Members:

  • A 20% discount on the premium of all life insurance and mortgage protection cases for members (these discounts will be applied to the lowest quoted life insurance company premiums).
  • One-month free cover – which means Epilepsy Ireland members would begin payment from the second month.
  • A €50 voucher for Homestoreandmore once the policy is activated.

In addition to the above benefit to members, Low.ie have also agreed that for every policy taken out by Epilepsy Ireland members, Low.ie will donate €5 to Epilepsy Ireland per policy  – which will then be matched by the Royal London insurance organisation.   A total of €10 will be donated towards our work for every policy undertaken.
