Family Gateway Surfing day out

Family Gateway’s ultimate aim is to ensure that the family environment is safe, secure, loving and healthy, empowering all members of the family particularly children, to achieve the best possible outcomes. Currently it manages a local community building which is being transformed into a Hub for Family and Community Enterprise. Family Gateway employs local people who have lived and experienced some of the same or similar issues as its beneficiaries. They provide whole family support to vulnerable ‘hard to engage’ families with barriers to engaging with services and agencies, developing enterprising solutions to local problems.
