Gateway to Education Limerick is a voluntary organisation that offers support to families, primary school children, and college school leavers who are disadvantaged and economically excluded.
We are now one of the main providers of services to Parents, children and young adults who live in limerick. We primarily operate at two of our venues, implementing a cost reduction model. Our reach is largely based in the Munster region.
We provide a range of services to our local community to help them reach their full potential.
We offer recycled school essentials at a nominal fee, thus helping the environment.
Our shop in Limerick City stocks great bargains to be got on clothing, shoes, bric-a-brac etc. Monies raised goes back into the charity.
We offer a mentor-ship programme to primary school children supported by the volunteers from the University of Limerick at our Castletroy venue.
We offer one to one support to college school leavers who want to enhance their job opportunities, with the help of retired professionals.
We offer client based services based on seven years experience of working with families , those with disabilities and those that find it hard to access work experience due to the lack of places available.
