Policy And Research

Policy and Research

Learn about the Changing Lives’ position on the political, policy and social landscape that we operate in.

Policy and Influencing Work

Changing Lives influences policy and practice to improve the lives of people facing the most challenging of circumstances. This includes experiences of homelessness, addiction, abuse and exploitation, contact with the criminal justice system, long-term unemployment and more.

We draw on our research, the expertise of our teams, and the experiences of people with lived experience to help tackle the root causes of disadvantage, and influence systems and services to better support people when times are tough.

To find out more about our policy work, contact our Policy Manager, Philippa Rousell, at Philippa.rousell@changing-lives.org.uk.
