About Us

The Exeter Gateway Centre is a friendly place where learning disabled people can come together and enjoy a range of social and recreational activities. These are organised by a small team of staff and volunteers.

The Centre provides a safe and secure environment where members can relax, meet their friends and have fun. It also encourages members to explore and interact with a range of new and unusual activities.

Members can choose from a wide variety of Centre based activities including, cookery, creative art and craft activities, indoor and outdoor games, discussion groups, singing and dancing and working on computers. A bi monthly newsletter gives a general theme for members to engage with if they wish and it serves as a general topic for discussion.

The Centre has a greenhouse  and some deep beds for vegetable growing. We grow lots of fruit and vegetables that are used in the kitchen to make chutneys, soups and anything else that members fancy eating!  Several members have a keen interest in gardening and growing. Also, we have a covered decked area where members can up-cycle furniture and use the woodworking equipment.


In the summer months Belmont Bowling Club kindly let us use their green on Wednesday mornings. We are very grateful to all the staff that organise the sessions and teach us how to bowl. It is great fun as the video shows!

We are always open to discussing new opportunities for membership, volunteering and fundraising within the club. More information can be found in the relevant sections of our site.
