Department of Social Protection launch survey on cost of Disability

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.
