The Gateway Project

NWRC currently deliver the Gateway project from Penrhyn House in Bangor, Gwynedd.

Funded by the DWP (Department for work and pensions) under their Flexible support funding initiative, NWRC deliver a therapeutic day programme that is open to individuals in receipt of benefits who are facing a number of barriers to employment including substance misuse, offending and long term homelessness.

The project includes a number of mutual aid based recovery programmes including “Moving on in my recovery” (a CBT & ACT based programme), “Intuitive Recovery” and access to onsite 12 step fellowship meetings.

The focus of the “Gateway project” is very much around enhancing the health and well being of participants and as such there is a strong emphasis upon physical exercise with sessions including Boxing, football, mountain walking and access to on and offsite allotment projects.

Participants are supported to develop the ‘Recovery capital’ and positive coping mechanisms needed to build a life free from substance misuse and to strengthen and enhance their chances of securing and maintain long term employment.

Mutual aid, role modelling and positive support networks are integral to the work carried out by NWRC. We believe that individuals can and will recover from long term substance abuse if given a positive and supportive environment that surrounds them with other individuals who are clean and sober.

The Gateway project is available to individuals on both a residential and day attended basis.
