Gateway North East-UK is a registered charity originally set up by young people with a Disability and their parents/carers in a Sunderland and was known as Sunderland Gateway and in North Durham as Wear Mencap. Our name was changed to Gateway North East and at this point, Wear Mencap became a separately constituted group.
Our aim is to provide appropriate and identified leisure, life, recreational and educational opportunities to young people with Disabilities or barriers to learning, young carers and their families.
Through this partnership, several children with intellectual and developmental Disabilities and Special Needs Schools in Greater Accra and Central Regions have benefitted from the provision of tables, school uniforms, educational/learning materials, school bags, shoes, slippers, toiletries, food items, etc. Some of the beneficiary schools include:
