How many Day Programs does Windgap offer?
Windgap hosts four separate Day programs; two sites located in Banksmeadow and two sites located in Eastlakes.
Our day programs provide a place for adults with intellectual disabilities to attend during the day to engage in social and organised activities. These can be specifically tailored to individuals and group needs. Our Day Programs cater for adults from different age groups who wish to benefit from the stimulation and involvement in our supported community programs.
Our Day Programs house purpose built communal living rooms, workshop areas, accessible facilities, entertainment spaces and informal lunch areas, catering for all our participants.
What do participants enjoy the most about joining a Day Program?
Participants at Windgap’s Day Programs enjoy exploring their community, developing new hobbies and forming long lasting friendships. Our programs build on social and life skills, as well as working on personal goals. Our staff help to match participants to the best program in order to support their unique needs and interests.
