To lead the way in creating meaningful communities using a virtual platform to reach a wider range of people, who otherwise may feel very isolated.
During the coronavirus pandemic, when organisations had to close their doors, our team at Windward Day Services quickly got to work using their imaginations and compassion to create an online provision for our services users. Our timetable was varied and creative and focused on providing meaningful sessions tailored to everyone’s interests and abilities, whilst also keeping people connected during this challenging time. People began to ask to join our online sessions and so we created a second timetable which we called Friends of Windward. This reached more people who were also isolated in their homes and we had some great feedback from people. During a poem writing challenge, Sebastian shared his thoughts with a poem call “Life was like lockdown anyway”
This gave us the inspiration to continue on with our service that was still a great option for many people who might not be able to access traditional services, or would like to enhance their weekly provision. And so Click was born! Our Zoom timetable continues to provide meaningful sessions with a focus on building social skills, learning new things and creating a community.
The Click team is a dedicated group of people who bring you inspiring sessions that make sure everyone who joins in feels welcome and celebrated.

“With all trailblazing there are pitfalls, but I think you have tapped in to a previously unused (certainly in our experience) area of support. It has been a vital part of lockdown for us and could even have been the difference between getting through and not! As an ongoing service, it provides an opportunity for Becca to have people ‘in our home’ when she needs to wind down and not be super stimulated by being outside, whilst still being kept active, whether in mind or body!”
“Click has not only given Jordan something to do, but has gently taken him by the hand and warmly welcomed and embraced him. It has given him a voice & helped him to see his talents which he didn't always see himself. Click has helped Jordan make more friends, laugh out loud, to feel a sense of belonging and built his confidence. ”

“I just wanted to thank all of you for providing such an amazing selection of activities on Zoom for everyone throughout the week. Abi looks forward to partaking every day and it never fails to put a big smile on her face and make her very happy when she sees you all. You have all put a tremendous amount of effort into these activities. Thank you so much!”
