Data Protection

We take our responsibility for your data extremely seriously. We have a dedicated Data Protection Officer who you can contact with any questions you have. You can find out more information in our privacy policy.

Gender Pay Gap Reporting

Gender pay reporting legislation requires employers with 250 employees or more to publish calculations every year showing how large the pay gap is between their male and female employees.

Changing Lives employ a high proportion of female staff, including a large number in senior roles. Our gender pay report is therefore favourable. We are committed to equal opportunities across all protected characteristics and beyond, including people’s lived experience of the services we provide.
