Ten Years Of Support And Care
We are delighted to CELEBRATE our Ten-Year Anniversary this year, so we have a lot of experience in helping our Parents/Carers as well as Children and Young people.
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 live an independent life. We’re looking to provide a lot of fun, but also to encourage new friendships, development, growth, confidence and new skills in our Children and 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 college life. 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.
Our steering group and our volunteers have received extensive training, including Paediatric first aid, Makaton, IT, Accounts, Literacy and Numeracy, Health & Safety, Food Hygiene, and Safeguarding. This allows you and your children to feel completely safe and supported.
We work extensively within the local community with local businesses all across Nottinghamshire to find new and exciting events and venues to build awareness of what we do.
We provide important Respite Care supporting Targeted Short Breaks for our Children/Young People via our on-going 10 year tender/contract with Nottinghamshire County Council. This has enabled us to employ quality Support Workers in the local community. We offer extensive training to all of our employees as we want to offer as much support to you as possible and make life easier, whilst bringing in fun with our activity programme.
This is a non-profit making service that Spectrum WASP are able to offer.
Please do get in touch with us today to see how we can help.
