WINGSsupport.com - The online home of WINGS:

Wombourne Special Needs Support Group.

  WINGS is in its twentieth year: founded by a small group of parents of children with Special Needs, WINGS became a registered charity in 1998. The group is based in Wombourne, South Staffordshire, and has a growing membership of parents/carers of children and adults with a wide variety of special needs in the South Staffs, Dudley and Wolverhampton areas.  

  WINGSsupport.comWe run a wide variety of evening, weekend and holiday playscheme activities for children. These provide them with a social group and a sense of belonging, as well as stimulus in drama, music, art and physical exercise. We also run regular trips and outings to all sorts of exciting places. 

 

 Families benefit from the respite from a caring role as WINGS provides trained and volunteer staff for these sessions: most of the children require 1:1 supervision.

 The parents' support group offers opportunities to share ideas and experiences, someone to listen, someone to cry with let off steam or laugh with; and somewhere each child's individuality is celebrated and their differences aren't judged or a cause of embarrassment. Families are welcome at social fundraising events where they can interact in a relaxed and understanding atmosphere: some of our regular events include, bowling, Valentine's Discos and the Panto. For the last three years we have  had a professional theatre company come and perform for us. The children helped to prepare the scenery for the productions and appeared on stage in the shows' finales.

  Our quarterly members newsletter celebrates activities and support; provides practical information and publicises local meetings, and highlights workshops and events of help and relevance. It is also sent to appropriate service providers and statutory bodies. The WINGS Centre also offers a range of publications and information resources to parents, as well as a welcome to anyone who wants to call in.
