City Gateway is a London focussed charity working to transform the lives of children, young people and women most impacted by social and economic disadvantage and exclusion.
They work to ensure the communities have stronger foundations for learning at school, easier transitions into adulthood, better job prospects, healthier relationships and improved mental and physical health.
They work on the belief that by dealing with the root causes rather than the costly after-effects, they can enhance a person’s ability to transition and navigate life’s challenges more effectively.
They bring hope by enabling communities to flourish - socially and economically - by providing safe, sustainable and meaningful programmes that foster whole community cohesion and launch individuals into long-term education, employment or enterprise.
Their commitment is to ensure everyone they work with develops the skills and confidence that enable the whole person to add long-term value to their lives, their families and the wider community.
Their service priorities focus on enabling the following key group to flourish:
Children – Under 5s
Young People – ages 14-24
Women – all ages
By working with these groups they believe they can achieve the greatest long-term impact to affect societal change; thereby generating substantial savings for public services and the economy, as well as improved livelihoods. They call this the City Gateway Whole Person, Whole Community model.
