If you’re a parent of a child with epilepsy living in South Lee & West Cork, we’d like to invite you to an upcoming support group meeting!

Our support groups are a vital resource to many parents of children with epilepsy. The group offers them an opportunity to meet with others who are supporting a child living with the condition; to discuss any challenges they may be facing; concerns they may have; and to hear from & meet with other parents who may have insights on what you may be experiencing.

We often note how epilepsy is a condition that affects the entire family, and these support groups aim to support parents in supporting their child with their journey with epilepsy.

This support group will be hosted by local Community Resource Officer for the South Lee & West Cork region, Niamh Jones, who will be there to offer support and information as part of the support group meeting.

We look forward to welcoming you on the night and should you have any further questions, please contact Niamh by emailing
