Wandsworth's WAND and WAND+ Cards indicate that the card holder:

  • is either a Wandsworth resident or 'looked after' by Wandsworth
  • is a member of the Disabled Children's Register (DCR) (if under 18)
  • has a significant level of special educational needs, disabilities or complex health needs.

This is not necessary for a WAND+ Card for those over 18 years old.
