St Elizabeth’s College offers young adults aged 19-25 years with complex special needs, including epilepsy, the opportunity to develop the skills needed to move towards a more independent lifestyle.

St Elizabeth’s will accept applications from individuals, their families, carers or social workers (local authorities).

If you are interested in making an application please click here (Make an application) to download the form.

We hold regular open days when the St Elizabeth’s admissions officer will be happy to give you a guided tour of St Elizabeth’s, and this may help you decide if St Elizabeth’s is right for you.

On receipt of your application the multidisciplinary team at St Elizabeth’s will arrange to conduct a full assessment of need. We will take your assessment to an internal panel which will decide if St Elizabeth’s can meet your needs. If the panel believes we are able to do this, you will be made a provisional, verbal offer of placement pending funding agreement from your local authority. (If you are a self-funder the costings will be sent directly to you.)

Following this assessment we will calculate how much it will cost us to make sure we meet your assessed need. This cost will be sent to your local authority, which will take the information to their panel for agreement. The funding agreement can take some time to negotiate, but our Admissions Officer will keep you informed at every stage of the process.
