2023 May WHF - Different Journeys

On Saturday 22nd of April, we held the Different Journeys Autism Family Swim & Social Night here at Windy Hill Fitness Centre.

Our team is incredibly proud to report that there were over 45 attendees! This incredible number included many new local faces. As a result of such a great turn out, the entire pool area was full and yet everyone was still able to enjoy their own space. It was great to see so much interaction between the group and staff. Furthermore, it was wonderful to hear about the new attendees and how this event inspired them to check out our facilities.

The outdoor barbeque was also a massive success! 

Plenty of new friendships were formed, with many individuals, parents and/or carers being very appreciative of the opportunity to socialise with each other.

We cannot wait to see everyone at the next Autism Family Swim & Social Night in September!

In the meantime, check out some of the photos from the April Autism Family Swim & Social Night below!

More information about our Family Swim Nights…

Autism Family Swim & Social Nights are one of the many different activities that Different Journeys coordinates to help empower and support autistic children, teenagers, adults and their families. The intention of the Family Swim Nights program is to gradually expose autistic people to all aspects of the aquatic environment, resulting in familiarisation and empowerment and the potential to participate in regular learn-to-swim classes or simply to enjoy the facilities throughout our regular operating hours. Family Swim Nights are back and we have six events scheduled at Windy Hill Fitness Centre between now and the end of the year.

The next event is Saturday 9th September 2023, 4:00pm – 6:00pm.
