We provide various services for adults with learning disabilities.
Come and meet us at our regular Drop In. Every Tuesday 12 – 2pm at St Mary’s Church Hall, Old Town Hemel Hempstead, HP1 3AE
In April 2019 we decorated Easter bonnets at Drop-In. We then had an Easter Egg Hunt outside, in between the April showers.
Drop-In is held every Tuesday 12-2pm at St Mary’s Church Hall in Hemel Old Town.
At Gateway in March 2019, we welcomed a 10 piece Ukulele band called “Katies Jumping Fleas” who entertained us for the evening. It was a fun and happy night for our members, plus the staff, and we hope to invite them back soon. Message from the band was “We had a blast! We loved every second of the evening – wonderful. We are happy to play anytime for your Gateway Club”
Our nightclub nights are always the first Wednesday of the month, from 7pm – 10pm at Mode Nightclub, Marlowes, Hemel Hempstead. We only offer care on site to our ROAR members, but it is open to anyone with a learning disability and their carers. £6 entrance on the door, one free carer per person.
