Specialist services


Our street outreach services work with vulnerable people who sleep rough on the streets, many of whom have additional needs including mental health problems and drug or alcohol dependencies. We work to understand the complex reasons why someone might be sleeping rough, and provide support tailored to their needs, whether that’s getting them back in touch with their family, or helping them address traumatic experiences from their past.

We currently provide street outreach services in Camden, Lambeth, Cambridge and Leeds.

Domestic abuse

Change Grow Live has delivered domestic abuse services in the South East for twenty years. Working across East Sussex and Brighton & Hove, our service provides information, advocacy and practical and emotional support to women and men living with domestic abuse and violence.

We help victims explore their options, including housing, safety, legal issues and guidance through the court process. We also put them in touch with other organisations that may be able to address their concerns, including refuge accommodation and sanctuary schemes. Our aim is to support people to make informed choices.

Mental health

Our Atlantic Recovery Centre drug and alcohol service in Dudley provides additional specialist support to people with a dual diagnosis of substance misuse and mental health problems. Our service addresses the complex interplay between substance use and mental health problems and supports individuals to access mental health interventions alongside substance misuse treatment and recovery services.

We also provide emotional wellbeing services for young people in Cardiff and The Vale and Newham.

Supported housing
Our supported housing offers a therapeutic environment for people who need additional support towards living independently. This includes people who need help with drug and alcohol problems including non-medical and clinical detox. We also support people who have left prison and who are returning to live back in the community. Service users have their own room and share communal facilities with the others in the house. Staff are onsite to provide advice, deliver psychosocial interventions and run groups and activities.
