A Fantastic Place to Live & Learn

We work with young adults with complex additional learning needs and disabilities, teaching them to self-advocate, build skills and find greater independence.

Lives Full of Meaning & Purpose

We are devoted to the people in our care, every contribution is valued – learners, residents, volunteers and staff all benefit hugely from our culture of community living. Our work is grounded by principles of inclusion, mutual respect and increasing the life chances of people with autism, learning difficulties and disabilities.

My son is always keen to return after a break with us, this says it all! Coleg Elidyr has been fantastic for him.

At our Rhandirmwyn site, we run a specialist residential further education college, Coleg Elidyr and a community residency programme, Inclusive Lives. Offsite we offer long term residential living at  Victoria House in nearby Llangadog for adults with learning difficulties and disabilities.

Accommodation & Facilities

We have lots of great facilities including a small holding, gym, shop and weavery. Our houses are run as warm, supportive households where people can be themselves. We eat, socialise and undertake chores together, sharing experiences and making decisions on household matters such as menu planning and leisure activities.

Our education provision has also been awarded 'Excellent' in all areas in our 2019 Estyn inspection. In 2020 we were proud winners of a Natspec Award in the student voice category. We have been awarded 'Advanced Accreditation' status by the National Autistic Society for our exceptional approach working with young people who have autism.

This is a wonderful place ... our son Douglas has achieved things we'd never have dreamed he could. He's also been so happy.
