Referral Details

Initial contact should be made to the Education Liaison Service team, who will manage the referral process for anyone wishing to use our education, health and care services. The team gather information so we can understand your young person’s needs. Our multidisciplinary team assess the documentation following which an informal meeting will be arranged.

When a residential placement is sought, we invite the young person for a two day assessment which involves attending the school or college and spending an overnight stay on one of our residential houses. They would join in the evening activities with other students.

When a day place is sought, the young person is invited to attend a two day assessment. This involves attending lessons and undertaking activities with students of a similar ability. The young person is also assessed by our therapy and medical teams.

This allows us to fully understand all their needs and how we could support and develop the young person. Following the assessment, the family will be advised of the decision. If appropriate, a funding request would then be made to the local authority.
Information on training, our helpline or obtaining copies of the numerous publications and information sheets available can be obtained by emailing info@youngepilepsy.org.uk or accessing our website www.youngepilepsy.org.uk

Other notes

We have the one site based in Lingfield In Surrey, and to be able to attend the young person must have a current EHCP.

We accept privately funded students from across the world.
