Our People

Our team is led by Chief Executive, Jo Harper and our Board is Chaired by Paul Hanna.

Gateway was originally set up to help people into formal training or employment – and so to better health. This pre-employment training provides a “gateway” into employment – it’s what gave our organisation its name.

We say that people are best helped by those who are two steps ahead – in other words, people who have experienced problems but have made progress. So we employ people with direct, personal knowledge of the issues our clients face. Often, they’ve overcome similar problems themselves. The people they are supporting will relate to them, and their achievements don’t seem too far out of reach.

The people we employ are recruited from all communities. Our approach to recruiting and training local people means that we provide reliable, long-term staff, and our diverse workforce connects better with the people it serves.
