Pathfinder is a homelessness prevention programme for young people who may be unable to live in the family home , or “sofa-surfing” with friends. Through coaching, it enables these young people to overcome any challenges that are impacting their accommodation.

“Prior to coming to Gateway, I had no idea of the help available. They treat everyone with respect, sometimes under difficult circumstances. The service helps people with emotional and physical problems. Keep doing what you are doing.”

“All staff have been so helpful from the start of my journey, they have linked me in with other services to support my mental health and there’s nothing too big or too small for them. The staff have gone above and beyond for me.”


We run a breakfast club that helps individuals gain structure to their day, check in emotionally with staff and set about their actions for the day. We’re looking to raise £1,000 to keep our breakfast club going.
