Make A Change
The Make A Change project support anyone who’s worried about how they’re treating their loved ones, as well as the family, friends and professionals who want to help them change. It a free course of face-to-face sessions where you can talk about any difficulties that you’re having in your relationships with your partners and/or ex-partners. You can refer yourself, a relative, or someone you know.
You can make a change if you’re worried by how you’re treating a loved one.
By taking part in Make a Change, you’ll have a space to consider where your ideas about relationships come from, and start to think about difficulties within your current intimate relationships.
For most people, it’s the first time they’ve ever talked about relationship difficulties, so we know that it can be difficult to make that call.
For partners and ex-partners
If your partner or ex-partner is going on the Make a Change programme, our separate support service will get in touch to see how they can help you. Entirely free of charge, this service will give you the opportunity to:
- Ask questions about the programme and your partner or ex-partner’s progress
- Talk about your own experiences
- Get advice and practical help
You can access the service however you want – by phone or in person – and anything you talk about is completely confidential from your partner or ex-partner.

Family and friends are often the first to know that something isn’t right.
