The Gateway Card gives children and young people with disabilities or additional needs access to activities through the short breaks programme.
Benefits to activity providers
- It's easier to identify children and young people that need extra support
- You can get short breaks funding to help individuals that need extra support. This funding is called ‘support for individuals’
- You can market events and offer activities to Gateway Card holders and their families
- You can offer other benefits to Gateway Card holders, such as first session free, carers go free, discounted rates
- It will be easier to report details of attendees at events and activities funded through the short breaks programme. This means less paperwork for everyone.
Contact us if you would like some Gateway Card leaflets to give to families. Tell us how many leaflets you would like, and the name and address to send them to.
Funding is available for organisations to help them provide short break activities.
