Charity: Changes Bristol
Charity number: 1167828
Description: Changes Bristol is a grass roots mental health charity providing peer led Support Groups for people suffering mental distress in the Bristol area. Our free, open access support groups take place across Bristol, same time and same place every single week. Changes Bristol gives people suffering from mental health issues a safe, non- judgemental space to talk and share experiences with others going through something similar and to take realistic and positive steps toward improving their lives and their well-being. Changes Bristol has been running mental health peer support meetings for adults in Bristol since 2004, with the charity?s expertise helping more and more people each year. We rely solely on grants and the generosity of fundraisers to provide this vital service which is a lifeline to many. How your money helps: £13 could pay for 10 membership packs to be provided to new members to help them take steps toward improving their lives and their well-being. £35 could fund a 2 hour peer support group to help people suffering with mental distress in your area. £150 could allow us to train a volunteer to facilitate weekly support groups for those who are at different stages with their mental health with patience, understanding and empathy

Our charities range from big national charities to local schools, churches and social groups.
The donation amount varies from store to store. Most of the time you raise a percentage of what you spend - between 1% and 10% - whilst sometimes it's a fixed amount.
With some stores there are different rates or restrictions depending on what you buy - you can see more information on each store's page on our website.
Yes! You don't pay anything extra for your shopping, the donation is made at no extra cost to you.
It's also completely free for your charity. There are no joining or payment fees, so 100% of the donation will reach the charity.
We pay charities once a month by BACS via our payment partner, The Online Foundation.
You can view the status of every donation within your account. A donation will typically move from 'pending' to 'approved' to 'paid' over the course of a few months.
As a "thank you" for sending them sales and customers, our stores pay us a commission.
We use this commission to make a donation to your chosen charity.
We donate 50% of the commission we receive, with the other 50% used to fund the on-going development of Give as you Live Online, which is free to all charities and users.
All donation amounts we display represent the amount the charity will receive - a 5% donation means a 5% donation!
