Fundraise for Changing Lives

The people who use our services can sometimes feel that they have a mountain to climb, so it is apt that some of our supporters do just that to help them.

Mountain climbers, marathon runners, abseilers, sleepout CEOs… anyone who takes on a trial to support Changing Lives stands shoulder to shoulder with our clients and gives them courage to continue with their own personal challenge.

They also provide vital funds that enrich our services and help us to reach out to more people.

Spaces are limited so reserve your place today!
