Gateway into the Community is based in Hexham but works with people who have learning disabilities throughout West Northumberland. At present, most of our activities are concentrated around Hexham and Prudhoe, but we are keen to extend opportunities to all who live in West Northumberland and are looking for ways to support more people in the area.
Some of our members live at home, some live in the community and some live in residential care. Some of our members never talk, some of our members never stop talking. Some of our members need a lot of support, some members go on to provide support to others.
We are passionate about the impact of our work and take pride in knowing that we are making a difference. Members have told us that being part of Gateway into the Community has changed their lives.
