Spectrum WASP (We Are Special People) as a group was formed in 2009 and in 2012 became a registered Children’s Charity with its own Management Committee, that consists of Parents, Carers and Volunteers.

We support Local Children and Young people on the Autistic Spectrum with Disabilities, Special and Additional needs. We also support their siblings and families within the local community of Rainworth, Blidworth, Mansfield and surrounding areas of Nottinghamshire.

The fundamental aim of establishing Spectrum WASP Children's Charity is to support the development and skills of our Children/Young People through our weekly Activities, Workshops & Learning programmes. For Children/Young People with Special and Additional Needs, life can be overwhelming so it’s important for us to help them with suitable activities and learning, giving them a chance to integrate into society and work towards living an independent life. Our objectives are to provide support in health and wellbeing, life skills, learning, social interactions, friendship groups and fun.

We also provide support for our Parents/Carers through our Training/Workshops (including online training) & Coffee Morning programme which promotes health and wellbeing and also enables them to gain knowledge to help in caring for their Children/Young people.

We work with local colleges including Vision West Notts and their community tutors, so our Young People are more prepared and ready for Post 16 life. We have brought in quieter sessions for SEND Young People to attend to find out more about Post 16 education options. It is very informal, there’s time to chat but at the end, we aim to have our young people feeling ready and confident to go to college.

We work positively within the local community with local businesses across Nottinghamshire to find new and exciting activities to do together enabling us to signpost families to safe places, to enjoy visiting together.

Through our 10-year tender with Nottinghamshire County Council we provide important Respite Care supporting Targeted Short Breaks for our Children/Young People. This has enabled us to employ quality Support Workers in the local community. We offer extensive training to all our employees as we want to offer as much support as possible and make life easier, whilst bringing in fun with our activity programme.

Our base at Pine House A, Ransom Wood, Mansfield, is set in a wonderful green outdoor environment, giving us the opportunity to provide a varied programme of indoor/outdoor activities, training and learning workshops. We need to sustain funding to continue growing within our local community, to be able to support as many Children/Young People and their Families as possible.
