Why IEBA?

We live in fast paced world and there are few faster paced industries than electrical. The Irish Electrical Benevolent Association (IEBA) acts as a network within our industry offering practical help and support to people who suffer changed circumstances, be it from illness or other factors.

Founded in 2001, the IEBA has been active in helping many members of the electrical industry, and their families, who have experienced difficulties with, for example, bereavement, depression, terminal illness, accidental death,  special treatments, or retraining.

The association has and continues to make a real difference to the lives of electrical industry employees and their families.  With your help, awareness and support the IEBA can do a lot more to assist those less fortunate in the community that is the electrical industry in Ireland.

Through your awareness, the IEBA can identify, assess and assist those in in the electrical industry who are in real need, anywhere in the country. Each member of the industry needs to be an Ambassador for the association – you are our eyes and our ears – so please be active, and be aware and keep us informed.

To bring any case of hardship or difficulty to the attention of the IEBA Committee, just pick up the phone and talk with any committee member, or put some brief details in writing using the form here on the website. Please include the name of the person concerned and the company they worked for within the electrical industry.

All enquiries are, of course, treated in the strictest of confidence.
