An Introduction to Gateopener
GATEOPENER is a local charity that has been providing free disability information to people living in Suffolk and East Cambridgeshire for over 12 years.
Using our comprehensive database which lists thousands of national and local
organisations we can provide you with the information you need.
We are also able to advise individuals looking for financial help by identifying charitable trusts and organisations who can be approached for assistance with funding to meet almost any need, e.g. holidays, equipment, computers, etc.
GATEOPENER was originally set up in November 1994 and was
called the "Newmarket & District Gateopener Project".
This was part of a Scope initiative, to offer free and confidential information and support to disabled people, their families and carers.
In November 1999, the organisation became an independent registered charity as "Newmarket & District Gateopener".
In 2002 it changed its name to GATEOPENER. The service has been expanded to cover the whole of Suffolk and parts of East Cambridgeshire.
