Know Your Services 2012
What can Dover Gateway and Dover Discovery Centre do for you? Partners are inviting you to come and visit the Dover Discovery Centre on Thursday 12 April between 10am and 2pm and find out.
Partners are holding a 'Know Your Services' event for local residents to find out what services are available for them. There will be different groups providing information and guidance about their services and when they are available in the Gateway and Discovery Centre, including Connexions, Disability Drop In Centre, Health Trainers, Kent Supported Employment and the Volunteer Bureau.
Kent County Council and Dover District Council joined up to open the Gateway office in Dover, which provided increased services for residents, including a range of voluntary and community support services. The Gateway opened in 2010 and has successfully engaged with local businesses, charities and voluntary organisations to ensure that the services it offers are relevant to residents' needs, and it is constantly evolving.
Matthew Munson, Front of House Coordinator for Dover Gateway said: "We're holding this event to show how we, and the Discovery Centre, are committed to good customer services by letting the local community know who works with us and how they can help."
Dover Discovery Centre houses the Library, Dover Museum, a theatre and Adult Education together under one roof, and so can offer a variety of services to the local community, and it is always adapting to remain fresh and relevant to the community.
Amanda Forrest, District Customer Services Officer for Dover District Libraries added: "Both the Discovery Centre and the Gateway have been incredibly successful in building partnerships and letting people access services from a central location. The 'Know Your Services' event is a way of showing people what we can do to help them."
You can find the Gateway at Castle Street in Dover, and the Discovery Centre at the Market Square.
