About City Gateway
City Gateway is a charity dedicated to bringing hope to the local communities of Tower Hamlets that haven't benefited from the area’s wider economic development.
We look to connect with local women and disadvantaged young people, and run programmes whic
h engage, train and provide them with the skills and opportunities they need to enter work or further education. We were set up by a group of City workers involved in local churches, keen to support the community around them.
We run women’s projects, youth training, a youth centre and a social enterprise hub - offering disadvantaged individuals everything from community events and drop-in youth clubs to apprenticeship schemes; and the chance to develop their own business ideas. We look to bring together different cultures and work against conflict and division.
We engage with the real needs of individuals through a step-by-step progression. We seek to provide individuals with the confidence, employability skills and the all round development they need to reach their potential. In partnership with a wide range of firms and community organisations we have seen amazing changes in both groups and individuals and made a visible difference to local statistics."
