Double your donation to Changes Bristol in the Big Give’s Christmas match funding campaign!
We are so excited to be taking part in this year’s campaign to raise £5,000 in just 1 week! Between the 28th November to 5th December, any donations made to us will be doubled. These funds will go towards the running costs of our invaluable online and in person support groups. Donations will be generously matched by our incredible sponsors during the campaign meaning your money can go twice as far.
What is it all about?
Our support groups provide safe, welcoming and judgment free places for people to share what’s on their mind. They are facilitated by trained volunteers and run for up to 2 hours – everybody gets a chance to share but there is never any pressure to do so. We currently have 13 in person groups all over Bristol and 9 online groups which take place over Zoom. Amongst these, 5 groups are for specific communities, these are our Mens, Women’s, Men of Colour, Women of Colour and LGBTQIA+ groups.
In our recent survey:
- 91% of members said they felt less socially isolated
- 86% said our services helped increase their confidence
- 91% said our services made them feel less suicidal

How can you help?
By donating to the Big Give between 28th November and the 5th December, your money will go twice as far. Thanks to some of our amazing supporters, any donations will be doubled during this week. That means your £10 donation will become £20. This is equivalent to providing one person with weekly mental health support through our groups for 4 months.
One donation = twice the impact.
If you are feeling extra generous and organised, you could consider setting up a small fundraiser with your friends, family or colleagues. We have created a Christmas fundraising pack with all of the information you might need, and can even create the posters and social media content for you!
