Chair and Trustees

Meetings are held in Chelmsford, Essex

The Change Project was established in June 2017 after its departure from the Relate Federation, in order to serve the best long-term interests of our clients. The charity’s mission is to provide a range of services to achieve positive change for all individuals by ending violence and abuse, resolving relational conflict and promoting emotional wellbeing. Some of the services include;

  • Domestic Violence Prevention services including RESPECT accredited Behaviour Change programme is delivered as a 27-week structured group work programme or an 18-week structured individual programme. The principle aim of the service is to increase the safety of victims and children by encouraging the abusive partner to change.
  • Sex Therapy and Counselling Services designed to help all types of people resolve their relationship issues. Counselling services include services for victims of domestic abuse, couples counselling and child counselling.
  • Community Services works in partnership with schools, delivering counselling services to children, young people and families in their local community.
  • Training designed for both schools and organisations. In schools this includes training students as Active Listeners who can then help to assist victims of bullying.  In addition to this the charity delivers courses to organisations such as “Domestic Abuse Awareness Training”.

The Change Project’s work in the field of domestic violence and abuse has continued to grow and evolve. Each year more than 100,000 people in the UK are at high and imminent risk of being murdered or seriously injured as a result of domestic abuse. Services rightly focus on meeting the needs of victims but only 1% of perpetrators get a specialist intervention that might prevent future abusive behaviour and as a result there is a high level of repeat victimisation.

Since 2016 we have been running one of three UK pilot areas for The Drive Project, a 3-year venture that challenges high risk perpetrators of domestic abuse. This new model of intervention aims to fundamentally change perpetrator behaviour to make victims and families safe.

The Change Project’s team includes seven members of staff led by Cathy Grafton, Chief Executive and two teams which include the Domestic Violence Prevention team and the Healthy Relationship team. These teams bring a range of different specialist qualifications depending on the service they deliver.

The Board meets quarterly and consists of people with specialist skills in finance & accountancy, legal, and HR. We are currently going through a board review process with the aim of creating a larger, highly committed and more diverse board who can help the organisation to achieve growth in our business and diversify our income. In particular we are seeking individuals with experience of marketing and fundraising, although we are open to people from other backgrounds. These are voluntary roles although reasonable expenses will be payable.

Trustees, The Jane Goodall Institute

Trustees: Finance, Governance, Fundraising & Commercial The Jane Goodall Institute Meetings are held in Central London in the evening In 1960, Jane Goodall travelled from England to Tanzania to get close to wild chimpanzees, document their behaviour, and shed light on our own evolutionary past. She won their trust and very quickly made the first observations of chimps making and using tools. She shone a light on the complexity and richness of chimpanzee communities, their human-like communications such as pats on the back, and much more. In the 1980s, rampant deforestation and its effects on the chimpanzees in Africa compelled Jane to broaden her research focus to include conservation. JGI UK was set up with a mission to make a difference for all living things through conservation, research and education, and it does this through programmes involving: Community Centred Conservation: Contributing to the preservation of chimpanzees and their habitats by combining conservation with education and promotion of sustainable livelihoods in local communities. Primate Care and Research: through study of primates in the wild, and sanctuaries for orphans of the entertainment and bushmeat trades. Environmental and Humanitarian Education: through Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots international youth education programme which aims to […]
