"Unlocking Potential.... Opening Opportunity..."

The Global Pandemic is taking its toll on all of us. Whether you're a young person struggling with going back to school or a parent still trying to balance working from home and supporting your teenagers, The Door understands where you're coming from and we are here for you.
We are the leading youth charity in Stroud with nearly 30 years experience of supporting young people and their families when times get tough. So if you need some support or just want a chat, get in touch with our friendly team.

"Where Every Young Person's Future Is Determined By Their Potential Not Their Past"

The Door's mission is to bring hope into the lives of young people and their families, through unlocking potential and opening opportunity so their past does not define their future.

Motivated by the Christian values of hope, forgiveness and prayer The Door delivers its services at the heart of local communities, seeking to engage stakeholders from the bottom up. We have in-depth knowledge of the local area and its people, we tackle the root causes leading to enduring results and are prepared to deal with complex issues that other agencies shy away from.

The Door travels with people for the long term – walking alongside them, carrying the burden and never giving up.
