Day Programs

what is the ndis

Windgap Foundation Day Programs provide clients with an opportunity to actively participate in and be valued by their community. All programs are designed for the service user to achieve full participation and goals, with activities selected base on the dreams and aspirations of the individual, as communicated by them. We aim to ensure that the person and those who are important to them are central to the way we operate. People are assisted to design a service, which is catered to their unique aspirations and requirements. We hope to continually improve and refine the service by listening to the person, and their family, and making adjustments as we learn more from them. We operate primarily in the Eastern Suburb. However we support people accessing programs as far afield as Parramatta, Sutherland and Liverpool.
