We are Changing Lives

At Changing Lives we believe that everyone deserves a safe home, a rewarding job and a life free from addiction or abuse. We also believe that, given the right support, anyone can change their life for the better. By focusing on their strengths, potential and opportunities, we help over 12,500 people overcome their problems and live safe, successful, independent lives each year.

We have around 100 projects in England staffed by 600 dedicated staff. We help people experiencing homelessness, domestic violence, addiction, long-term unemployment and more, to make positive change – for good.

Our Mission

At Changing Lives, we believe that anyone experiencing a challenging time can be given the right support to change their life for the better. Our aim is to drive change to support more people in more communities. 

A New Year, A New Chance

Help change lives this January

We all deserve a place to call home, and the safety of our own front door. Somewhere we can be ourselves. Somewhere to enjoy time with family and friends.

Changing Lives needs your support to help give more people currently experiencing homelessness the chance to start the new year with their own front door and the opportunity to create a better life for themselves. Whatever the reasons that cause someone to experience homelessness, temporary hostel accommodation does not provide the environment needed to build a positive future.
