Community interest company makes Wellingborough its UK base

A community interest company dedicated to helping learners with additional needs achieve positive outcomes has opened a national hub in Wellingborough.

ADHD WISE UK will offer a range of expert services and support for children and adults with an extensive range of conditions including ADHD, autism, and dyslexia from its new base in Silver Street.

The brainchild of former special needs teacher, Jannine Perryman-Harris, the community interest company was launched following her collaboration with fellow teacher Amanda Porter in 2019.

Jannine said: “Coming from a specialist teacher background has allowed us to create a team of experts, coaches and counsellors all dedicated to bringing about positive outcomes for young people and adults with neurodiverse conditions as well as skill-building programmes for parents and carers.

“To date we have been incredibly successful in running courses for ADHD adults and autistic adults. We’ve also had fantastic results in the courses we have put together for teenagers with ADHD, as well as skill-building programmes for parents and carers. We have a very inclusive environment focussing on counselling, coaching and up-skilling.”

Hopeful of a Spring opening, Jannine and her team will move into the new premises as soon as lockdown restrictions allow. Until then work will continue remotely.

She added: “We receive no central funding and nationally there are only four local authorities that fund our services to support their constituents. Unfortunately, Northamptonshire is not currently one of them but we hope to change that. We are here to earn a living not a killing. Our prices reflect this and options are available to help everyone who needs our support.”
