What is GAP?
Affiliated with Mencap, GAP is a joint scheme
between Basingstoke Gateway Award Project,
a registered charity, and Basingstoke Voluntary
GAP is a social, leisure and life initiative
set up 14 years ago for teenagers and young
people with a learning difficulty or disability
aged between 16 and 25.
GAP offers its members a chance to achieve
through different projects that are accredited
to the Gateway Award Scheme. The award
is similar to the Duke of Edinburgh Scheme
and takes place within a weekly Youth Club
Anyone involved in the project is encouraged
to set themselves new challenges, learn new
skills, gain confidence and make new friends
through many different activities.
