Welcome to Key Changes

Key Changes is a gender specific organisation designed to support and tackle social barriers for women who have experienced the criminal justice system and those at risk of offending. Our vision is to both support the women and to create equal opportunities for them.


  • The support Key Changes provides is incredible, their encouragement and efforts to support their clients goes above and beyond. Even if you've done something wrong in your life, they help you to accept what you've done and move on, it's about growing.
  • I came to Key Changes to work as the trainer in the salon, ‘What Women Want’. I had no idea about how much Key Changes does for the vulnerable women and the support and guidance given by the staff is invaluable. The courses available are easy to access and give the women a purpose and belonging.
  • Key Changes has helped me change my life around. The support they offer is amazing but the main reason Key Changes is so important is that no-one judges you. It is a welcoming and friendly place to be and offer so much. I am currently doing the hairdressing course here. People always want a second chance and at Key Changes you get it.
  • Key Changes have been very supportive of me and have shown me how to stay strong in everyday tasks which will help me control my behaviour. I thank Key Changes for this service, I have never known so much support.
  • I came to Key Changes when they visited me in prison and offered me help with housing. Key Changes has helped me by getting me in a hostel and has helped me with a plan to pay off my rent arrears. I feel that if it wasn’t for Key Changes I would have re-offended. They have been there for me to give me advice and support and they encouraged me to stay strong.
