Gateway Family Services

Gateway Family Services is a social enterprise providing a range of preventative health and wellbeing services and community-based support. Its services help people to sustain behaviour change and build resilience.

Since 2012 I’ve been collaborating with managers and staff at Gateway to write regular blog posts about their work, particularly around vulnerable people and clients whose stories wouldn’t otherwise be heard. This includes researching complex issues relating to health and social care and translating them into accessible stories.

More recently, I’ve also taken on a wider marketing role, which includes writing and designing press releases, case studies, leaflets, reports and other printed materials, as well as regular content for the website.

The brief: to show how Gateway’s interventions and support directly affect people’s lives. I use clear, simple language and write in a way that is as relevant, interesting and accessible to Gateway’s clients as it is to commissioners and managers in the health service.
