Gateway North East responds to the needs of Children and Young people and parents/carers of children with a disability or barrier to learning and their families by providing a variety of short breaks, activities and support.
Every Friday of each week during our Holiday Scheme is used as a day for the families of the children that attend the Gateway Holiday Scheme to go enjoy time together away from their homes.
Past family fun days have included places such as: Blackpool, Alnwick Castle, Legoland Manchester, Edinburgh Zoo, York and many others
Parents/Carers that can’t go on the family fun days but their children do will still be able to go onto the family fun days as they will be looked after by a trained member of the Gateway staff so that no one misses out on these fun days.
For more information please contact Joanne or Laura on 0191 526 3112 or firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com
If you have already joined us on one of our Off site Activities in the past, then fabulous you are ready to go, just email firstname.lastname@example.org and agree and confirm the offsite Activity and pick up point that you require. This must be booked at least 2 weeks before the Holiday Week with a 10% none returnable deposit and must be paid in full the Friday before.
If you are NEW to Gateway North East, please book a home visit by contacting Ashlea or Gary. We do home visits to support you to complete the forms and to ensure that you are given all the information that you need.
