WHO WE ARE
Changing life directions is a Non-Profit Organisation which in partnership with the community, aims to enrich the quality of life for residents of all ages by providing educational opportunities, raising awareness of health and well-being, training volunteers and engaging communities.
Changing Life Directions has been helping people facing some of the most challenging circumstances for over 4 years.
We began as a small Aged Care company providing home help and befriending services to older people in East Lancashire and North Yorkshire called First Response Support Services, after 3 years of helping people who were experiencing difficulty managing daily living task daily through our out-reach care support services on a 1-1 care program.
In 2018 we began to look at supporting the hard-to-reach communities living with Mental Illness and in Social Isolation due to a number of personal and social barriers. We began to tailor services to work with people who lack understanding and awareness of Mental Illness, Dementia and Domestic Abuse on a preventative model.
Since then, our services have expanded in both provision and geography. We are now operating across the Bolton, Rochdale, Salford and East Lancashire.
We re-branded as Changing Life Direction and registered as a non-profit organization in March 2019. Throughout our nearly 4 of operation, our core purpose has never changed. We are here to help people who are most in need, and today we are delivering support to over 300 people on a weekly basis, tackling social exclusion supporting men and women rebuild their lives following Domestic Abuse and violence, helping women integrate into the wider society and improving the lives of the future generation, our support packages and projects are aimed at building better opportunities for all, in every form.
At Changing Life Directions, we are walking by your side.
