At Windgap, our Day Programs provide an opportunity for individuals to actively participate in a range of recreational, sport and community activities.

Programs are facilitated by our passionate team of Community Support Workers, who arrange daily activities based on common interest or needs, from individual to group activities.

Our person centred approach also ensures that our programs are designed for the individual to help achieve the goals set out within their NDIS plan and fulfil their interests and aspirations.
