The Gate Charity was established in 2011, our aim initially was to help people who were affected by homelessness and food insecurity. The extent of the greater need was soon apparant and quickly ‘The Gate’ began to develop.  Over the years we have become an ever-evolving community resource that offers practical help for positive change. We provide safe environments that are open to all, particularly the vulnerable, marginalised, and homeless.    We provide opportunities to build confidence, realise potential and aspirations. With an unwavering vision to help socially disadvantaged and significantly improve the lives for those in need, crisis or isolation, we are seen as the ‘go to’ charity in Clackmannanshire.
