Do you know your Gateway and what services you can get from it? That's the question being posed to local people, with the chance to find out the answer next week (Friday 7 May).

Know Your Gateway will take place on Friday 7 May from 10am to 3pm and will showcase the range of services now available at Thanet's Gateway Plus in Cecil Square.

In the last six weeks alone, six new partners have begun to offer their services through the Gateway, including the Citizen's Advice Bureau, Porchlight, the Learning Disabilities Team and the Independent Living Scheme.

Amongst the organisations taking part in Know Your Gateway are:
Thanet College
Independent Living Scheme
Health Trainers
Disability Drop In
Migrant Helpline
Kent County Council Social Services
Kent County Council Community Wardens
Childrens and Families information
Learn Direct
Thanet Community Support Partnership

Gateway Manager, Stephen Meades, said: "We want to showcase the huge range of services now on offer at Thanet's Gateway Plus, as it's increased dramatically since we opened two years ago. We've added a number in the last few weeks alone, so the chances are there will be services on offer that you may not have been aware of. You can get to know your Gateway at our special event and find out exactly what's on offer there. We really are a one stop shop for so many different organisations."

If you represent a group from the voluntary or charitable sector and would like to join the organisations offering their services in Thanet's Gateway Plus, please contact Stephen Meades via e-mail on

Thanet's Gateway Plus is open from 9am to 6pm from Monday to Friday, with late night opening until 8pm on Thursdays. It is also open from 9am to 5pm on Saturdays. Full details of all the services on offer at the Gateway can be found at
