Open Wings is not a day centre. It is a small, unique, bespoke and person centered service in Nottingham which was established so that adults with a wide variety of learning difficulties could access learning and activities in a small and calm, safe, friendly and supportive environment.
It is a place to go to if day centre provision is not always suitable. Groups are smaller and tutor to learner ratio is also small.
Adult Learning is tailored to each individual and specific to their needs. If suitable, citizens can work towards gaining a work placement or employment. For more information please see our Services and About Us page.

“Open Wings was formed out of our passion and commitment to make a positive and meaningful difference to the lives of adults with learning disabilities and or difficulties. It will recognise each individual for their uniqueness and diversity.”

Absolutely appalling and shocking that learning disabilities or Down syndrome could ever have been any kind of reason for DNR!!

I watched this and could relate to how music can make a difference to someone’s life as I see it first hand every Friday at the @MfENotts #Open Voices choir for learning disabilities in Sherwood

Well done for challenging the trolls Neil.
This Morning @thismorning
After posting a video of his young daughter dancing, Neil was shocked when he received hundreds of messages making negative and abusive comments about Ella’s Down Syndrome.

Refusing to stay quiet, he challenged the trolls and in turn received thousands of supportive messages
