The Gateway Model

The Gateway Model's primary aim is to place communities in Preston at the heart of our organisation.

The objectives of the Community Gateway Model are:

  • To generate community pride and vision through providing opportunities for local tenant and community involvement in decisions about homes and neighbourhoods at a pace right for them and on issues that matter to them.
  • To establish a tenant democracy by enabling tenants to become members and owners of the organisation and, through that membership, get involved in decision-making.
  • To generate a cultural change that brings colleagues and tenants together, where tenants lead and own the organisation, working in partnership with CGA colleagues to deliver the quality homes and neighbourhoods they want.
