Established in 2010 by former MP and Transport Minister Paul Clark, Gateway Associates draws on the skills and experience of policy, government and communications experts to help organisations from a variety of industries and sectors communicate with Westminster and Whitehall and inform Central Government’s political decision making processes.
With a focus on transport, regeneration and social enterprise policies and government strategies, Gateway Associates helps company and community leaders understand the unique culture and stakeholder landscapes that they are operating within. Once this is known, a schedule of meetings, events and announcements can be identified or developed to help the company make its voice heard by the right people and not waste money on fruitless sponsorship, hospitality and lobbying exercises.
As well as providing strategic and implementation support, Gateway Associates has also developed a clean question survey that presents all sides of a policy debate in a balanced and neutral way. By creating this independent platform, Gateway Associates provides a first point of information for anyone wishing to learn about the issues surrounding the proposals and get a better understanding of the key organisations and people involved.
