Know Your Gateway 2013

On 7th May 2013 Thanet Gateway Plus will be running their twice annual event, ‘Know Your Gateway’ in Broadstairs Library from 10am – 2pm. The event will welcome local residents who would like to find out more about the Gateway’s services and its partnership organisations. 
The Gateway is a partnership project funded by Thanet District Council and Kent County Council and works with over 50 organisations.  
The aim of the event is to raise awareness of what the Gateway does, as well as showcase the services they have available to the general public; whether this is housing information, disability support or employment support. In bringing the Gateway to Thanet’s local communities it enables people to raise awareness of important issues/matters going on, this includes the Gateways continued support for people affected by the recent welfare changes. 
Some of the organisations that will be attending this year’s event are; Circle Support Disability Drop in Centre, East Kent Housing, East Kent Itec, Thanet District Council’s Housing Options Team, Kent Association for the Blind, Kent County Council’s Kent supported Employment, Royal British Legion, Health Trainers and the Volunteer Bureau.  
Donna Reed, Shared Services Director, for Thanet District Council, said; “This event is a fantastic way to find out more about the Gateway and the services it can provide.” 
“The Gateway and its events are extremely successful in building partnerships with a number of organisations and they continue to provide people with a great source of information.”
