Holiday Scheme Programme

Gateway Northeast’s holiday schemes are aimed at children and young people aged reception to 25 years old who have a disability or barrier to learning, this includes young carers. Although our activities are disabled focused, they are not exclusive, and everyone is welcome.

We aim to provide age appropriate activities for children and young people with onsite and offsite activities that are FUN, EXCITING, CHALLENGING and ACCREDITED!!!

Gateway Northeast is open every school holiday Monday to Friday except national bank holidays. we run sessions from 10:00am until 3:00pm each day.
