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.

““My daughter’s life was transformed when she joined Click. She looks forward to joining the groups each day after a long time with little social interaction with peers.””
“M. is really enjoying the sessions, and I think they are really well thought out, welcoming, accessible and friendly. I'm really pleased we found Click!”
“I’m sat here thinking I’m so glad I discovered click. It has been noticed by those who know me well that I’m happier, improved mental health and a massive increase in confidence since joining. I first saw the ad on Facebook and clicked on it as it piqued my interest that it was for autistic adults. Looking on the website was even more interesting.it looked fun so I found the courage to make contact. It took a lot of courage as well but I’m so glad I did. I wasn’t sure if I would be suitable as I don’t have learning difficulties (except specific to maths) but I feel part of something for the first time in my life. I fit in and look forward to sessions.”
“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. ”
“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!”
“Just want to say YOU ARE DOING A FANTASTIC JOB. My clients and families are singing your praises. WELL DONE TO YOU ALL.”
