SSNO Funding Approval

We are delighted to confirm that our application under the Scheme to Support National Organisations in the Community and Voluntary Sector 2019-2022 has been successful.

Funding of €233,304 has been secured for Epilepsy Ireland under this scheme which is overseen by the Department of Rural & Community Affairs and is administered by Pobal. The scheme will run for a three year period and commenced on the 1 July 2019.

The overall aim of the Scheme to Support National Organisations is to provide multi-annual funding towards the core costs of national, community and voluntary organisations in Ireland. This funding will assist us greatly in operating and funding core staff positions as we continue our work towards achieving a society where no person’s life is limited by Epilepsy.

We wish to thank both the Department of Rural & Community Affairs and Pobal for granting this funding and we look forward to utilising same to build on the strategic objectives of Epilepsy Ireland.
