Have your say

A Rainworth-based support group for children with Autism and their families is going from strength to strength and successfully raising the profile of the disability whilst offering more help to more families than ever before.

Spectrum WASP (We Are Special People) is an award-winning group, having picked up community awards from Newark and Sherwood District Council and the Chad’s very own Pride Awards already this year, as well as receiving funding from BBC’s Children In Need and being ‘adopted’ by Mansfield’s Sainsbury’s store as their charity of the year.

The group, which is led by support worker Sue Edwards, has over 152 children and their families on their roll giving them vital support, information and activities to help them face the challenges of autistic spectrum disorders (ASD).
