About Wigginton Cottage

Wigginton Cottage is a five bed residential service for male and female adults in Tamworth, Staffordshire which specialises in supporting people with Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS).

Located in the heart of the beautiful village of Wigginton, the cottage is close to local amenities, parks and the countryside, yet in easy reach to major bus routes and the M6 and M42 motorways, making it accessible to towns and cities such as Birmingham, Coventry and Walsall.

Our approach to care and support

Wiggington Cottage is part of Craegmoor’s specialist Prader-Willi Syndrome services, formerly known as New Directions, which has been developed since September 1998 with the involvement of service users, families and care professionals to design best practice in supporting individuals with PWS.

By encouraging people to take control and have belief in their potential, we can make positive outcomes a reality for everyone, regardless of age or presumed ability.
