At Changing Our Lives, we are passionate about leadership and are always looking to invest in the leaders of tomorrow. We know through our work nationally that disabled people and people with lived experience of mental health difficulties are seldom offered leadership opportunities to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society.

We create bespoke leadership development programmes, really exploring individual’s expectations and aspirations for themselves to better understand what they want for their future and how they can achieve this. Programmes are set within a human rights context, giving individuals an understanding of how universal human rights can unlock opportunities, widen their knowledge and help them to manage many of the most critical opportunities, challenges and responsibilities they will face throughout life.

How we can work with you:

  • We provide bespoke leadership training programmes for your school. 

Programmes will:

  • offer opportunities for greatness in the context of leadership
  • increase awareness of what it means to lead an aspirational life
  • develop skills and attributes such as resilience, self-esteem, team working and critical thinking
  • provide an increased knowledge and understanding of what it takes to succeed in the real world, an understanding of how to utilise universal human rights to aid opportunity, and the skills to navigate this journey
  • develop a broad understanding of leadership, the attributes of a successful leader and how this can be used for an individual’s own gain
  • increase connections to ‘real world’ opportunities with successful professionals
  • focus on what individuals aspire to and have opportunities to extend their comprehension and understanding within that field
  • build confidence, self-belief and determination
