Gateway in the Community


We want you to love living in our communities.

We are passionate about building better communities, that is why investing in our communities is fundamental to CGA and as part of our Gateway in the Community programme, we deliver a wide range of services across the city and beyond to support local residents and enable neighbourhoods to flourish. 

Teams from across CGA work together to support our communities: from helping customers receive benefits and food support, assisting community groups to access funding, supporting students at our charitable subsidiary Preston Vocational Centre (PVC) and much more.

However, COVID-19 bought with it many unexpected changes and colleagues were unable to be out and about in the communities like they usually are due to lockdown restrictions.

We recognise that the hard work is far from over and we will continue to work hand in hand with our tenants and communities. 


Here is what teams from across Community Gateway have been involved with.
