STRIVING FOR CHANGE

We currently run our Striving for Change Programme in Manchester, Rochdale, Tameside and Oldham. 

This service aims to create an awareness of unhealthy behaviours and support individuals in working towards changing their behaviour in order to improve their relationship with their partner or ex-partner.

Once completed, the Striving for Change client may have an opportunity to be referred to our Bridging to Change programme, for further behaviour intervention.

At the point of referral, the client will be contact for an assessment by a dedicated assessment and referral worker. As part of the process, the client's partner or ex-partner will be contacted and offered support.
