Background

Carrick Junior Gateway started in St Colman’s church back in 1987 when the founding leaders felt there was a need for a youth club in the local area that catered specifically for children with learning disabilities. We later moved to our current home of Sunnylands Youth Centre which provides plenty of space for our regular activities.
Carrickfergus is fortunate within the Mencap family as the town is host to the local society Carrickfergus and District as well as having Carrickfergus Senior Gateway, a social club for people over eighteen within the local area, and ourselves of course.
