are extremely proud that our work has been recognised nationally earning us prestigious industry awards including both client and voluntary work.
2015 PRII Award Winner of the Best Public Affairs Campaign for our lobbying with Down Syndrome Ireland.
Fuzion Communications, as PR representative for Down Syndrome Ireland, was tasked with strategising, implementing and managing one of the most critical and significant public awareness campaigns that gripped Ireland in 2014 - to represent, and be the voice of, thousands of children with Down syndrome who were in danger of losing their discretionary medical cards.
Our dogged and determined public awareness campaign, which achieved phenomenal coverage was a proactive and positive activity to help raise awareness of the medical card issue and the importance of reinstating them. Ultimately, one of the most critical measurements of the campaign was the Government’s U-turn on the decision, and the end goal was achieved as all 1,000 medical cards were reinstated.
An announcing the award, the PRII said:
"Fuzion and Down Syndrome Ireland took an issue of considerable concern and brought it to the fore on the national agenda. The judges commented on the clear objective; the modestly funded budget; the classic, skilled and relentless communications approach; the media coverage achieved and, ultimately, the securing of a Government U-Turn."

In 2013 we won a Chambers Ireland National Communications CSR award and were recognised for Excellence in PR by the PRII for our international 'Safebook' campaign, which encourages the responsible use of social media and provides a useful resource for dealing with cyberbullying on inappropriate behaviour online.
