In keeping with CHANGES user led ethos, users are encouraged to get involved in management, administration, and service delivery.

Management: membership of CHANGES Executive Committee is open to all service users, (currently all Executive members are users).  The Executive Committee is the management body responsible for making decisions, planning and reviewing the organisation's work.

Administration: opportunities exist for users to volunteer as Office Workers, involved in the day to day running of the organisation. Roles include - Funding and Development Worker, Public Relations Officer, and Social Secretary, (currently all volunteer office workers are service users).

Service delivery: opportunities exist for users to volunteer as Group Co-ordinators, who work in pairs to run CHANGES mutual help groups.



Training  Changes provides a wide range of accredited training programmes for its volunteers and service users.

Co-ordinators Training Programme: is designed to train people with first or second hand experience of mental distress, or a genuine interest in recovery to co-ordinator Changes weekly mutual-help groups.

Bi-monthly Co-ordinator Training courses: designed to share and develop good practise in delivering Changes service.

Volunteers training programmes: designed to enable volunteers involved in management, administration, public relations and partnership work, fundraising etc to develop the skills necessary to perform these roles.

User Training Programmes: designed to expand upon and reinforce recovery concepts detailed in Changes 12 Steps.
