“Melton in Motion” is Gateway Community Service’s newest program for people with low level support needs who are on a home Care Package that wish to keep socially and physically active

A great way to stay engaged with people in the community.

The program is conducted by qualified staff and has the support of many trained volunteers.

 

Gateway Community transport has been designed to encourage people with mobility concerns to continue being active.  All vehicles have been modified with support rails to ensure their needs are well supported. Gateway Community Transport is unable to support last minute changes to collection and drop off points.  Any alternate arrangements must be communicated with staff prior to the program to determine if possible.
