Celebrating 70 years! 🥳

Children pictured out the front of Mount St, Coogee, at the first “Windgap” school. 

The house title, Windgap (named after the previous owners’ hometown in Ireland) was kept and to this day, 70 years on, our organisations name remains.  

The founding grassroots parent group, with the help of local politicians, councils and community members, purchased the house which was used to run classes and programs for children with disabilities.

I went to Mount Street a lot as a child, with my Nan who looked after me during school holidays. She helped out a lot as my uncle went there. He's still a resident in one of the houses. <3

A lifesaver for parents and children! Congratulations Windgap , you’re the best! ❤️

Congratulations to a great organisation

This was such a beautiful building.

Feeling empowered! 💪

Participants at Windgap Foundation are enjoying the Me Plus More program and appreciate the opportunity to be involved in this job and life skills training for women. 😊It’s International Day of Education and to celebrate we are highlighting the important work of Me Plus More - an online platform that provides job and life skills training for women with an intellectual disability or cognitive impairment.

Founded in 2020 by #TaraShekede, the Me Plus More platform delivers accessible personal and professional development to inspire and empower women with disability to achieve their goals.

The platform delivers a range of learning streams that allow participants to choose how they learn, independently or with the support of a carer, and fosters member connection through an online community.

Me Plus More is supported by the Women’s Leadership and Development Program #WLDP delivered by PM&Cs Office for Women. #WLDP currently funds 76 diverse projects to advance gender equality in Australia.

Fun visiting and feeding the friendly horses at Sydneys Centennial Park! 🐴🐎

The Equestrian Centre Centennial Parklands provides riding programs and stables for over 150 horses and a chance for some of Windgaps Florence Avenue day program participants to get to know some of these gentle creatures. Spending time with horses can have benefits for people with disabilities such as improving mood and building self-confidence.
