For the Community

From the Gateway Centre, we run a number of services for the benefit of the wider community.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, many of our activities have had to pause. As activities begin again, we'll keep this page updated. All of the services below are currently running.


CAP Debt Advice

We partner with the award-winning national charity Christians Against Poverty (CAP) to deliver a free debt advice service to those struggling with unmanageable debt. Our Debt Coaches, Jackie Adie and Lucy den Braber, work with individuals and families to support them out of debt. For more information you can visit the CAP website or call 0800 328 0006.

York Foodbank

Each Monday we partner with York Foodbank to run a distribution session - providing emergency food to local people in crisis, as well as a welcoming place to sit and talk with members of our team. Individuals with a Foodbank voucher can redeem it for 3 days of food between 11am and 1pm each Monday.

To learn more about York Foodbank, or to find out how you can donate food, please visit their website.


A Safe Place to Connect

The pandemic has meant all kinds of change and loss. For many, after so much isolation we're eager to connect with others. So we're creating a safe place for people to connect.

Each Wednesday between 10.00am and 12 noon, you're invited to join us at the Gateway Centre. Simple refreshments are served and social distancing is maintained. Activities are provided, but you're also welcome to bring a hobby or craft with you.

Partner Agencies

Several partner agencies run services and projects from the Gateway Centre. They include Reflect Pregnancy SupportRestore YorkTiny Toes Music and Alcoholics Anonymous.
