ABOUT US

Change Grow Live is a charity specialising in Substance Misuse and Criminal Justice intervention projects in England and Wales. We’re funded by councils and local authorities who commission us to provide services, and we sometimes receive donations from the public.

Because we’re not a business, we’re not looking to make a profit. So we can focus on making sure that everything we do is helping the people who use our services, and the wider public too.

In Lancashire and Blackburn with Darwen, we operate under the brands Inspire, New You and Go2. Within all our services in Lancashire, we have teams that support with all of the following and much more

  • Clinical interventions for drug and/ or alcohol treatment
  • Family Safeguarding
  • Criminal Justice
  • Homelessness
  • Housing
  • Education, Training and Employment
  • Recovery Support
  • Behaviour Change
