Registered as a charity with the Australian Charities and not-for-profits Commission, the Windgap Foundation was formed by a group of parents 70 years ago to provide education to their children with intellectual disabilities who were denied schooling.
Today, Windgap provides support over 200 families and opportunities to participants from 18 to 84 years, fulfilling a range of needs and goals in supported employment, residential group homes, learning and life skill programs, support coordination, and participation in community life.
“To improve the quality of life of people with an intellectual disability by supporting them in reaching their full potential and raising community awareness as to their needs and aspirations”
