Based across 68 acres of beautiful countryside, St Elizabeth’s is the only national charity supporting children and adults of all ages with epilepsy and other complex medical conditions, the severity of which impacts upon their health, social, behavioural, learning and emotional development. We offer access to high-quality, individual care, education and leisure opportunities, helping everyone to live their lives to the fullest.
Over the past 115 years, St Elizabeth’s has grown and developed to comprise a non-maintained special school for both boarders and day students, a specialist further education college, domiciliary care for college learners, and residential care with nursing. There is also a comprehensive day opportunities programme for residents and day clients, and 24 hour health provision provided by specialist nurses and therapists.
The charity was previously one of the charitable works of the Congregation of the Daughters of the Cross of Liège, a Catholic religious congregation founded in 1833 in Liège, Belgium. On 1 October 2018, St Elizabeth’s Centre became a charity in its own right, continuing the wonderful work established by the Daughters of the Cross.
