Helping Hands Gateway Cafe
2-4 Smith Street
CV34 4HH

Opposite Warwick’s Eastgate & very close to Warwick Castle and St Nicholas’ Park.

Just opposite the Westgate in Warwick, the Gateway Cafe is lovely place for a drink, a light lunch or even a sweet treat.

The Gateway Café is one of the places where we help people to regain their confidence and gain new skills. We give people support and opportunities to gain qualifications and get ready for work.

"The Helping Hands Gateway Cafe is a life changing experience - not only does it help with qualifications and experience it helps with confidence and mental health. It’s also an amazing place to be with amazing staff who support you and the cafe is a religious and spiritual place where you can relax and with the help of friends and God can be able to express yourself without judgement. Helping Hands changes so many lives it’s an amazing charity and I am honoured to be part of the Helping Hands family."
