What is Wandsworth's WAND+ card?

Wandsworth's Additional Needs Database Plus Card or 'WAND+ Card',  is:

  • a convenient form of ID. This can help to avoid the need for lengthy explanations when asking for any existing concessions and assistance within the borough
  • if you give us permission, we will email you weekly e-Newsletters about activities, offers and other information about Wandsworth's SEND local offer.

1. What can I use the WAND+ card for?

2. Do you need original proof of eligibility?

No. We don't need to see your original documentation - just send a photo of your most recent proof of eligibility in an e mail on completion of the on-line application form for your WAND+ Card. 

3. Who can have a WAND+ Card?

Anyone aged 18 to 24 years, with special educational needs, disabilities or complex health needs can apply for a WAND+ Card, provided they are a Wandsworth resident or a Wandsworth 'looked after' young person.  To qualify for a WAND + card, you need:

  • a letter confirming you are getting  Disability Living Allowance (DLA) or
  • a letter confirming you are getting Personal Independence Payments (PIPs)
  • a letter addressed to the WAND+ scheme from a medical, social care or educational professional confirming that you have a complex health need that impacts significantly on getting about and accessing services

Anyone with a query about eligibility is welcome to call the SEND Local Offer Team on 020 8871 8907, or email  cdr-wand@wandsworth.gov.uk.
