Gateway Award

P7250068The Gateway Award is a multi-activity awards programme for people with a learning disability. It is a bit like the Duke of Edinburgh Award with Bronze, Silver and Gold levels.

The Gateway Award empowers people to experience new things, gain confidence, increase independence, meet new people, have fun and get fit.

To name a few activities this year have included:

  • Cooking
  • Arts and Crafts such as sewing and batik
  • Sports such as basketball, tennis, trampolining
  • Money skills and lifestyle courses
  • Dance
  • DIY
  • Volunteering at Birkenhead Park, Vale park and the Walled Gardens

There are places available for the new programme starting in September 2017. We run it one whole day a week and is a great alternative to a Day Centre place or having a PA. Please see attached leaflet for more information or call Lizzie.

Not everyone can afford the time or money to commit to a whole day a week of Gateway Award and would rather do it in their own time or the evening. Read this leaflet (easy read Gateway leaflet) to find out more. If you are interested, get in touch with Lizzie Carline or Julie Crossley on 0151 666 1829 to make an appointment to come in and see us.
