How can you help us make a difference?

Epilepsy can strike at any time, regardless of age, wealth, ethnicity or religion. At St. Elizabeth's we have been welcoming those who struggle to manage their seizures for over 110 years. For many, St Elizabeth's is their permanent home.

At St. Elizabeth's, we believe everyone should have the chance to learn, enjoy and live the life they want, regardless of their abilities. We are committed to supporting our residents and learners as far as possible, to ensure they are given all opportunities to live life to the full.

We need your help...

Those we support require specialist, 24-7 support, have multiple and complex medical needs and often need lots of specialist equipment and therapeutic support. We also offer a huge range of activities for them to take part in, specifically tailored towards their individual needs.

But this all costs money...

St. Elizabeth’s receives funding from Local Authorities to finance the essential costs of care, accommodation and education for individual service-users.

However, in order to ensure that we can keep our services and facilities as up-to-date and of the highest quality as possible – from sensory rooms and accessible playgrounds, to medical systems and skills-development opportunities – we rely on the support of generous individuals, community groups, companies and trusts, to help fund this essential component.

There are loads of ways to get involved - from making a donation or running a marathon, to shopping in our shops or coming to an event here at the Centre:

Donate

Fundraising

Volunteer

Shop

Attend an Event

Every donation helps - most of the donations received at St Elizabeth's are £10 or under, but added together can make a real difference to the lives of those who are not able to help themselves.

We are currently fundraising for:

A new Night Monitoring System

Sadly many epileptic seizures take place during the night, which can be very dangerous for the individual with high risk of suffocation and death.

At St Elizabeth's we monitor all of our adults and children at risk throughout the night, to help detect signs of a seizure as early as possible - this is a crucial part of our care system. However, our current Night Monitoring System in our Adult Homes is getting old and out-of-date, and is in need of an upgrade.

The new system will allow us to monitor our residents at arms length and only intervene when it is absolutely necessary, ensuring a good night's sleep for all our residents and preserving their dignity and privacy.

We need to raise £320,000 to fund a new Night Monitoring System for all of our Adult Residential Homes.
