About us

Changing Lives began in 1970, when four people set up Tyneside Cyrenians, offering food and shelter to people experiencing homelessness in the North East.

Since then, services have grown and developed to support people experiencing a wide range of personal challenges, including addiction and recovery programmes, employment guidance, help for people in prison or on probation, and support for people experiencing sexual exploitation or domestic abuse.

Today our charity employs over 600 staff, has 400 volunteers and operates from Berwick to London giving people hope and aspiration that their lives can change.

We listen carefully to the experiences of people with lived experience and 20% of staff at Changing Lives have previously used services.

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 14,000 people overcome their problems and live safe, successful, independent lives each year.

We’re looking for committed and compassionate professionals who share our enthusiasm for changing lives.
