Welcome to Gloucestershire Gateway Trust, a unique charity which seeks to create charitable benefit in the county particularly the communities of Matson, White City, Podsmead, Tuffley and Stonehouse.
Gloucestershire Gateway Trust is working to enable sustainable regeneration in our target communities and to help create sustainable income sources for some of our local community partners.
Gloucestershire Gateway Trust is working to demonstrate how charities and businesses can unite around a common interest to generate substantially more charitable benefits than a charity could deliver on its own. Our joint motorway services project with Westmorland Ltd is a unique national exemplar of this type of social investment and how it can have a multiplier effect on charitable benefits. The Northbound Gloucester Services will open in May 2014 and it is hoped to start building Gloucester Services southbound in 2014 too.
