The staff and Board of EPIC would like to thank Tusla, the Child and Family Agency for funding EPIC’s core activities, as well as everyone that supported EPIC throughout 2021. To progress our mission and achieve better outcomes for the children and young people at the heart of our mandate, collaboration with a wide variety of individuals, organisations, and services in both the statutory and voluntary sectors is vital.
We acknowledge the many professionals with whom we worked over the course of the year that are dedicated to meeting the needs of care-experienced children and young people, and who work to ensure their needs are met and voices heard. We particularly acknowledge the children and young people in both our Advocacy Service, and our Youth Council, who engaged with EPIC during 2021. Their contributions, experiences, and successes inspire and motivate us every day.
