Community Winners 2015

Gateway into the Community 2015

Gateway into the Community started in 1998 as a small befriending project for people with learning disabilities and has grown and developed, currently enabling several hundred members who live in West Northumberland to lead more fulfilling lives. A sense of belonging is what empowers the charity’s members to feel valuable and able to contribute to the communities in which they live.  Members become more self-reliant and purposeful, with improved health and wellbeing and they are actively encouraged to pursue their own goals.
