Gateway Family Services is a Community Interest Company. It was established in 2006 and operates in Birmingham and across the West Midlands. Our services cover areas like employment training, weight loss and pregnancy outreach (see below for details). The common thread is “people who need help” and all of the areas we cover have a direct impact on health and wellbeing. A non-profit organisation, we use any surplus to invest in the education, employment, health and wellbeing of the communities we work with. We understand how health and social care systems work. We work in partnership with the NHS and Local Authorities to support their strategic decisions, whilst empowering people in the community to break the social, cultural and economic barriers that can cause deprivation.
In ten years we’ve created and delivered nearly 20 services to support over 70,000 people across Birmingham. And there are more in the pipeline – our teams are working with partners all over the city to develop new ideas all the time. What all of our services, past and present, have in common is “people who need help” and everything we do has an impact on people’s health and wellbeing. Many people in the city have a consistently poor relationship with health and social care services, and Gateway is here to make a difference to the experience and outcomes of those people. - See more at: http://gatewayfs.org
