Our project is based in Saltburn and reaches out to young people in East Cleveland. A registered charity, established in 1998 as Saltburn Christian Projects. We can be found upstairs, at Destinations Internet Café – next door to Barclays bank.

Doorways is partnered with “Destinations,” an Internet Café and Online training centre. Between us both, we offer support to all ages.

Funded by The Big Lottery, Reaching Communities fund. The focus of our work is “5 Ways to Well-being.”

Our aim is to increase people’s wellbeing, which in turn improves their Health, mental ability, sense of awareness, choices and achievement; enabling change in outlook and an ability to set positive outcomes for themselves, their families and the community.

Our focus is not so much on the activities - more on the ethos of 5 ways to well-being. The outcomes from any activity will be greater. Part of the project, is to display the importance of: “It’s not the what that we do - it’s the why that we do it.”

New Economics Foundation created a report for the Governments, Foresight Project 2008; and coined the phrase “5 Ways to Well-being.”

  • To Connect with others
  • To take Notice of things around us
