We felt as if there needed to be a dedicated outreach service for individuals of all genders over the age of sixteen, so established Change Ur Life with the mission to empower victims to begin a new life away from fear.
We have been lucky enough to be funded by the Police Crime Commissioner for Bedfordshire, Festus Akinbusoye, who has generously given us the opportunity to set up a safe haven for those who need it the most. Festus, along with his team, is responsible for ensuring that Bedfordshire remains as safe as possible for its community, giving all residents a voice and a chance to make a change.
