The Gateway Programme Promoting Recovery and Awareness

The Accredited Gateway Programme was designed and developed by people who are passionate about making a difference to the lives of those who are/have experienced controlling abusive relationships.

Gateway Ethos

The Gateway Programme is built on the principle of respect and empowerment while raising awareness of the impact and dynamics of controlling relationships.

Objectives:

  • Create a safe space for mutual support

  • Promote an active understanding of the dynamics of controlling relationships.

  • Increase understanding of where the responsibility for abusive behaviour lies.

  • Reduce isolation, self blame, denial and minimisation.

  • Raise awareness vis person centred active experiential methods, respecting the privacy of personal experiences.
