Neurodiversity Networks CIC celebrates the opening of their Wellingborough base

Adults, children, parents, and teachers can now access specialist help for neurodiverse conditions such as ADHD, autism, and dyslexia following the official opening of the county’s only dedicated centre for help.

Local dignitaries including the Mayor of Wellingborough, Councillor Lora Lawman, and Events Committee member Cllr Mark Jones, attended the official opening of Neurodiversity Networks CIC’s base in Silver Street Wellingborough on Saturday 26 February.

Jannine Perryman, CEO of Neurodiversity Networks CIC and former special needs teacher, said: “The launch of the Wellingborough hub means that we can offer a range of face-to-face support and expert services for children and adults living in the area with an extensive range of conditions including ADHD, autism, and dyslexia.

“It’s so important to see these developments within and for the neurodiverse community, we feel privileged to be a part of that.”

Artwork created by people who identify as neurodiverse and their families was unveiled as part of the company’s ‘Splash of Colour’ exhibition and is now available for viewing and purchase until the end of August.

Jannine added: “It is our pleasure to showcase a wide variety of artwork by neurodivergent people as a way to celebrate this launchand all things neurodiverse. Excitingly, the exhibition is now open to the public.”

Now open for people with ADHD, autism, and other neurodiverse conditions and those that support them, Neurodiversity Networks CIC’s Wellingborough base offers support including coaching and counselling via workshops, one-to-one sessions and online events.

Jannine added: “Earlier in the week we held a live virtual launch of our online services where we provided details on how we plan to serve the local community. Our virtual services are open to everyone no matter where they are located. The launch event gave us the opportunity to share details of up-coming services to parents, professionals, neurodiverse young people, and supporters of Neurodiversity Networks.

“Together the hub and online services we provide will help children and adults with neurodiverse conditions to take positive steps to a brighter future.”

Councillor Lora Lawman, the Mayor of Wellingborough, added: “The opening of Neurodiversity Networks CIC will support those who need assistance to deal with ADHD, autism, dyslexia and associated or related conditions, who may through Jannine’s own experience, find a safe hub of support and understanding. I wish them all the best and welcome them to Wellingborough as a new business.”

Another prominent guest who attended the opening of the Community Interest Company’s first Neurodiversity Hub includedTony Lloyd from the ADHD Foundation in Liverpool.

Tony said: “With so many individuals and families in need of support it’s really important that third sector organisations are there to bridge the gap between what public services currently provide and what is available in the private sector.

“We have a long-standing relationship with Jannine and the team at Neurodiversity Networks CIC, and are proud to be supporting what they are doing.”

Neurodiversity Networks CIC also welcomed associated organisations including community-led arts programme Made with Many, parent support group Define Fine, not-for-profit social enterprise Confident Communities, ADHD Foundation, Wellingborough & East Northants Chamber of Commerce, Wellingborough Council, local employment specialist IPS employment support, and NHS community and mental healthcare provider Northamptonshire Foundation Trust.

Since its launch as an organisation, Neurodiversity Networks CIC has supported thousands of people by helping them gain confidence, accept their identity, and feel good about themselves, to promote better outcomes and relationships in all aspects of their lives.
