Ellie Thompson

Services and Social Media Coordinator

Ellie is very excited to be a part of the D&A team. As a disabled learner herself, being diagnosed with ME as a young teenager shaped and challenged her experiences in education. Receiving DSA support during her time at university was transformative, and loves that working at D&A gives her the opportunity to help learners herself and ensure they too get the support they deserve. She’s always happy to chat to you over the phone or via email!

Ellie’s passionate about mental health, recognition of invisible illnesses and all things accessibility. She has a background working and volunteering in the education sector, supporting students from diverse backgrounds to aim for higher education or their chosen future ambition.

She grew up in Brighton and recently returned to the city to study an MSc in Experimental Psychology. A big fan of all things Brighton, she’s always willing to offer some local recommendations. When not at work she can be found doing yoga, cooking, or losing a pub quiz.
