About City Gateway
Based in Tower Hamlets, City Gateway is a charity that supports young people from some of London's most disadvantaged communities to reach their full potential. The organization focuses on individuals aged 16 to 24 who are currently not in education, employment and training (NEET) and aims to equip them with the skills, qualifications, and mindset required to achieve sustainable employment, such as apprenticeships and other job opportunities. In 2021-22, City Gateway helped 76% of its young people to achieve positive and sustainable EET outcomes, surpassing the sector benchmark of 24%.
