Wolverhampton Gateway Club

Wolverhampton Gateway is affiliated to Wolverhampton Mencap and is a club for adults with learning difficulties. We cater for adults of all ages and have members in their teenage years as well as several members who are senior citizens. We hold our activities at the Beckminster Church as it is most accommodating and welcoming. We all value their help and friendship and look forward to our Friday evenings at Beckminster.

Gateway aims to provide friendship and support for all people with learning difficulties. Members socialise; play pool, table tennis, darts and Wii games; run a tuck shop; engage in literacy and numeracy challenges; listen to music; engage in craft activities; take part in karaoke and play bingo.

Gateway organises a number of trips and events for members including visits to theme parks; to places of interests such as the Space Centre; to the theatre and for meals in pub restaurants. 

Wolverhampton Gateway is a busy club, with over seventy members and a waiting list. We can make a justifiable claim that we are one of the most diverse clubs in the area in terms of age, ethnicity and ability and that we are able to make a significant difference to the lives of the learning disabled in Wolverhampton. We have a small staff who are all volunteers.
