Expansion of our centre: Crowd funder

Expansion of our centre: Crowd funder

Hi all, we are delighted to be able to expand Gateway 4 Women having now gained the upstairs of the building. This will allow us to increase the support we are able to provide to women accessing Gateway 4 Women. This is particularly vital at this time as we have seen an increase in the support needed and number of referrals made due to the effects of COVID-19. We would love to make this new upstairs area as welcoming and homely as the main area. We have set up a Crowd Funder to help raise the funds needed to re-floor this new area. We would be extremely grateful if you could spread the word by sharing this link and gratefully appreciate any donations that can be made to help us towards this target. Many thanks, Gateway 4 Women
