What we do

Gateway into the Community was established in 1998 to support people who have a learning disability and enable them to access social, leisure and learning opportunities within their local and wider community. We support more than 200 people over the year and over 120 people attend various groups and activities every week. We believe that everyone should feel a part of their community and we support our members to feel a real sense of belonging within their local community. 

We offer a dedicated Day Service, Individual Support and special interest groups, from our successful sports projects to healthy living, create and chatter, performing arts, computer, older persons’, youth and adult social groups. Our members also enjoy our regular discos throughout the year that are eagerly anticipated and well attended. Health and happiness is at the heart of everything we do at Gateway.

We are based in the centre of Hexham at ‘The Den’
