Change Grow Live was developed in the 1970s by magistrates and former probation officers to support people leaving prison to resettle in the community. Today, we continue to offer rehabilitation interventions and services across the country that encourage and enable people to stop offending and regain control of their lives.
Our staff work in prisons, custody suites and communities to support individuals who come into contact with the criminal justice system, including those with drug and alcohol needs, those who commit large amounts of crime, women with children and individuals with complex needs.
We pride ourselves on our innovative approach to crime reduction. Our charity pioneered arrest referral services in the 1990s and today we deliver some of the most effective Drug Interventions Programme (DIP) services in the country, which achieve above average reductions in offending.
