SUPPORTING THE LOCAL COMMUNITY
City Gateway Women's Project
The mission of City Gateway Women's Project is to give underprivileged women a chance at a better life.
City Gateway Women's Project is based at Lansbury Lodge; running courses and events which are designed to support local women by developing their skills, helping them overcome barriers to employment and become role models in their communities. This support includes free basic-skills courses, ESOL and communication courses, confidence, public speaking and work taster courses.
The centre is a busy, thriving place with 300 women and children using it every week. As well as being a place to get Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG) and employment mentoring, CGWP provides women and their families with community and a place to belong. We do this through community activities, such as exercise classes; we also have a free crèche for women registered on our courses.
