Epilepsy is a condition that can affect the entire family unit. When caring for a child with epilepsy – especially where the condition is complex - there can be a knock-on impact for that child's young siblings.

This workshop will allow children of siblings with epilepsy to participate in online fun, games, and discussion – with other children who also have a sibling with epilepsy. Through this, they will not only have fun but also have an opportunity to discuss concerns they might have about their sibling’s long-term health condition – alongside other children in a similar situation to them.

This event is specifically for children who are living with a sibling with epilepsy but is limited to a max of 8 places to allow every child to participate fully in the online activities.  This event is being facilitated by our Community Resource Officer for Kerry, Pam O'Brien.

If you have any further questions, please contact Pam by emailing
