How can Gateopener help?

Many of the Charity's Trustees are either local disabled people or have a close connection to someone with a disability.

Therefore we understand how important information can be and how it can sometimes make a real difference to peoples' lives.

We are able to provide information on:-

  • Local and National Support Groups
  • Family Support Services
  • Communication Aids
  • Accessible Holidays
  • Equipment
  • Leisure and Social Activities
  • Education
  • Funding
  • Mobility and Transport
  • and more ...

We have a comprehensive database which lists thousands of both national and local organisations, who provide help, support or services to disabled people and their carers.

We also have a software application that individuals and their advisors looking for financial help can identify those charitable trusts and foundation that could assist them.

We are always happy to assist professional people, who work with disabled people, with information.

Our Outreach Worker is able to attend various support groups, schools, clubs, information days and can also liaise with other organisations, not only to present GATEOPENER's services but to obtain information about any new services that may be available and could benefit others.

Our leaflets can be made available in various formats:- Braille, Easyread, and some other languages.
