The Department of Social Protection and Employment Affairs have commissioned a survey seeking feedback from people living with a disability to investigate the cost of living with a disability in Ireland.
While the questions will not be applicable to all people with epilepsy, it is important to have insight from those who may be living with potentially uncontrolled epilepsy or parents and/or carers of people with uncontrolled epilepsy who have additional needs.
Epilepsy Ireland are currently seeing candidates for the postion of Fundraising & Communications Manager.
The successful candidate will become part of our senior management team and be responsible for developing a new multi-year income strategy in order to support the work we do in communities across Ireland and to achieve our overall vision of a society where no person's life is limited by epilepsy.
With our national fundraising week, Rose Week, now behind us we want to express our thanks and gratitude to everyone who contributed to the week; took part in a socially distant fundraising event; donated; or liked & shared our posts to increase awareness of our work.
The team here at Epilepsy Ireland have been inspired by the efforts of so many over the course of this pandemic and during Rose Week in order to support the work that we do on the behalf of people with epilepsy and their families.
Epilepsy Ireland has received confirmation that we have been awarded €177,838 under the Government's COVID-19 Stability Fund for Community & Voluntary organisations
The fund was established by the Government in order to provide a once-off cash injection to non-profit and community organisations who continue to provide vital services throughout the pandemic.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, Epilepsy Ireland have been continuing our services for people with epilepsy and their families across the country through our team of Community Resource Officers. Like the virus, we have not gone away.
