Our vision is of a world in which all can live fulfilled lives, free from domestic abuse. We aim to create an equitable and just future for women and their families.


We will do this by helping each individual find their own pathway out of a life of domestic abuse and change their future for the better.

We understand the complexities of domestic abuse and that individuals who connect with us are coming from different points in their journey; some are still in their relationship, some have left, but regardless of where they are, we will support them all.


We work to end domestic abuse to enable women and their children to live their lives in safety. What we do is driven by our core values:

  • Empower individuals to make their own choices in a safe environment to enable them to regain their independence.
  • Work with respect and dignity, valuing each individual’s experiences and circumstances and advocating for their unique needs.
  • Educate on the devastating impact that domestic abuse has on individuals, local communities and society.
  • Collaborate and work in partnership with other organisations to provide the best support for those impacted.

Changing Pathways is a member of Women’s Aid Federation England. As such, our approach acknowledges the importance of differing needs and separate spaces for female and male survivors of domestic abuse. We seek to ensure our services are accessible to all those who need support and are committed to developing and working with smaller organisations to offer specialist services to meet the needs of different groups within our community.
