About us

Gloucestershire Gateway Trust was formed in 2007 bringing together a group of leading local business people and social entrepreneurs. The Trust secured its charitable status in 2011.  We aim to generate charitable benefit and create sustainable income for charities in our target communities in Gloucester and Stroud districts.

Our commercial partnership with Westmorland Limited for the operation of a Motorway Service Area on the M5 between Junctions 11a and 12 is the engine that drives the generation of our local charitable opportunities. Gloucestershire Gateway Trust and Westmorland Ltd have setup Gloucestershire Gateway Ltd to take on the development of the motorways services project.

We know that successful long term regeneration in our target neighbourhoods needs the creation of accessible local employment opportunities and new community investment. Our work together will deliver these essential elements.
