Childhood dreams can become living nightmares. Please help us change lives that have gone badly wrong.
Established over 45 years ago, Changing Lives provides specialist support services for thousands of vulnerable people and their families every month.
Many of the people we support experienced trauma and abuse in childhood leaving them damaged and unable to see a way through the chaos. We give hope to people who are hopeless, support those who do not believe they deserve help and above all we allow our clients to form relationships of trust that they have not known before. Our services reach some of the most difficult to reach people in the UK. There is always a waiting list for our services. More than ever we need to raise funds to deliver and develop our services and meet the growing needs of our client group.
Our key achievements this year so fare include: 280th client gaining meaningful, paid full time employment through our employment service: Our 260th graduate from our Recovery Centre in Gateshead achieving a life free from addiction: Our 100th property purchased and refurbished into affordable, decent housing for vulnerable adults by our Homelife scheme.
