A Quote from one of the people we support, which reads "I'M PROUD TO BE INDEPENDENT"


"Before Changing Lives became involved I had a breakdown, lost my children and life seemed pointless. I couldn’t leave the house and my anxiety was at an all-time high. 11 months on I’m due to start college and I’ve booked some driving lessons. My advisor has supported me every step of the way. She’s completely changed my outlook on life and given me the tools to manage whatever’s thrown my way."

A Quote from one of the people we support, which reads "I'VE NEVER FELT SO FREE"


 “Alcohol recovery services have given me a cycle of support. I used the services to help overcome addiction and now I am giving back and getting a different kind of support. It shows that there is life after addiction and I’m looking forward to getting employment using my knowledge and experience."
