As a registered Charity we rely on funding from grants and other parents and some local authority funding to run what we do. Our organisation continues to grow mainly because local authority services are decreasing. The charity is committed to employing young people who have a barrier to learning or a disability and to encourage and support people into work. This has contributed significantly to our accreditation as ‘Leaders in Disability Achievement’.

Gateway North East is a registered centre for ASDAN, Sports Leaders UK and British Safety Council and also has registered assessors for the Arts Awards and teachers who can deliver music, drama and other national curriculum subjects.

We are very proud to acknowledge that we are supported by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.  People’s Postcode Trust is a grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery. Our project received £19970 from the Trust to help with our Stepping Out Scheme
