The Wheel - #GE2020

As a member of The Wheel, Epilepsy Ireland are supporting the recommendations made by the Wheel to sitting and prospective TD's concering health research.

The Wheel are Ireland’s national association of community and voluntary organisations, charities and social enterprises - including Epilepsy Ireland - and work to ensure that the importance of the community and voluntary sector as a whole is recognised by the State and that the necessary supports be in place for these organisations. As part of this General Election, the Wheel have identified four key campaign asks, which are outlined briefly below:

1. Recognise and support the value the sector adds to society
2. Support sustainable funding models
3. Enable responsive services through streamlined compliance systems
4. Embrace collaborative partnership working
The full Wheel Manifesto can be accessed here while further details on the four key campaign asks can be found here.
Epilepsy Ireland will be announcing our priorities for sitting and prospective Deputies in the coming days so please  keep an eye on our social media channels and our website for further information.
