Wagstaff way is the newest of the residential services for Autism West Midlands; Wagstaff way has been open since 2009.
Wagstaff way was formed because there was a need to provide a specialist service for two service users that lived at Gorse Farm for over 10 years. There was a need to move the two service users as they had made good progress at Gorse Farm and were ready for a quieter, more home like environment that would provide more opportunities for independence and choice.One of the service users walks to the village for her paper and goes to work independently. Wagstaff way will continue to help each service user reach their full potential.
Wagstaff way service users regularly use the Activity Resource Centre (ARC) at Gorse Farm and join in on the group activities such as Barge trips, Aromatherapy, Drama Therapy, Art Therapy and much more.
Wagstaff way is situated in Marston Green less than half a mile from the village, which has lots of facilities such as a post office, a general store, a local train station (which will take you straight to the city of Birmingham) and a pub.
The aim of Wagstaff way is to provide a safe and calm environment for the 4 female service users, Wagstaff regularly participates in group activities such as Bowling, Swimming, Disco, Pamper sessions and once a month the service users go to a special needs night club.
