Social enterprise has been a central part of City Gateway's history. We believe that social enterprises have great community benefits, creating jobs and training environments and offering quality services with a difference.

Our current range of social enterprises include:
All our social enterprises put social return at the centre of their business models, including all profits being put towards City Gateway's mission to bring hope to the local community through training and employment services. 

Our enterprises' clients include Buckingham Palace, corporates and the local community alike.

Based at City Gateway's main site, 32 Mastmaker Court on Isle of Dogs, we’re run by Flavour Gateway, a catering social enterprise from City Gateway. We’re a local community café  where young people can get training and work experience in a vibrant café environment.

Our café serves a tasty selection of hot and cold food using only the freshest seasonal ingredients.

Why not support us by popping in or coming for lunch? In doing so you will also be supporting our work in tackling youth unemployment in London.

Flavour Gateway LogoFlavour Gateway is a social enterprise started up by a group of ladies who came together over a love of international food and cooking. They began by catering for corporate and private events. As time has gone by, Flavour Gateway has expanded its product offering, creating bespoke celebration cakes and cupcakes and more recently the opening of our community café – Kitchen 32.

Gateway Tots is part of City Gateway’s Early Years Provision and is a social enterprise with a vision to bring hope to local families and communities.

At Mastmaker Court we will provide children aged 2 to 5 with excellent early learning opportunities that will secure their foundation to a successful future.

We encourage and support children to learn actively through play, whilst building strong partnerships with their parents and carers.

As we grow, we are continuing to prioritise the needs of the most vulnerable families and to provide a safe, secure and fun environment in which children learn, grow and achieve. We also aim to provide outstanding training and work experiences for childcare apprentices and learners.

Gateway Tot's work has generously been supported by GDF Suez, State Street and JP Morgan.
