Missions and Aims

At Gateway into the Community our ultimate goal is to improve the lives of people in West Northumberland who have a learning disability. We support members as they gain more confidence and self-esteem; we encourage them to achieve greater independence and we enable them to have more choice and control over their lives.  We insist that their abilities and aspirations are recognised and that they are valued for who they are. In this way, we strive to influence positive change in the wider community’s perception of people with learning disabilities.

Gateway into the Community has a distinct spirit of friendship and fun. This helps to achieve our mission by making it enjoyable for members to participate in the social, leisure and learning opportunities we offer. You can learn more about our services here:
