More About The Organisation

Organisation Description

About the Organisation

The National Centre for Young People with Epilepsy (NCYPE) is a national charity providing specialist services and support for children and young people with epilepsy and other neurological conditions. These include Aspergers, autism and a wide range of learning difficulties from moderate to profound and multiple.

The NCYPE offers residential and day services at St Piers School for children aged between 5 and 19, and at the NCYPE Further Education College for students aged between 16 and 25 to continue their learning. Our residential houses offer 24 hour home-from-home residential care and we also run a SureStart Children's Centre for all local families.

In addition, the NCYPE offers consultant-led diagnosis, assessment and rehabilitation services in collaboration with Great Ormond Street Hospital, as well as a Childhood Epilepsy Information Service which provides training and support for professionals, parents and young people themselves.

The Neville Childhood Centre, on the campus, is a base for a coordinated programme of international paediatric epilepsy research across the NCYPE and other institutions, including the Institute of Child Health at University College London. This research programme is being led by Professor Helen Cross, the Prince of Wales’s Chair of Childhood Epilepsy.

Based in Lingfield, Surrey, the NCYPE wants to see better health and education services for all children and young people with epilepsy in the UK and works with other epilepsy charities through the Joint Epilepsy Council to achieve this.
