Great Initiative for Lostock Gralam

Changing Lives Together

Changing Lives Together is driven by a single goal: to do their part in making the world a better place for all.

A range of services and volunteering opportunities are provided for all kinds of people.

Concern for the environment is also shown and the volunteers do not make any judgements.

​Changing Lives Together is a Social Enterprise and registered charity.

That means reinvestment in the people of Cheshire. There are not any shareholders wanting profits.​

  • Community Transport users make over 40,000 trips a year
  • Volunteers give over 2,300 hours of their time to support their socially isolated neighbours.
  • Over 6,500 Cheshire families find affordable furniture every year.
  • Redistributed, since 2012, over 35,000 litres of reusable paints as part of the Community Repaint
  • In 2019 we saved about 1,000 tons of waste from landfill and over 2,200 tonnes of CO2 from our atmosphere.

The Cheshire Food Hub in the Old School House, just over the canal bridge on Manchester Road and it provides a helping hand to all by offering a selection of food that would have been going to the waste tip.

The surplus stock is from Supermarkets and Farmers and for a low cost (£5) supply a bag of shopping up to a value of £30.


Opening times are Tuesday 6.30 to 7.30pm

Wednesday 10.30 am to 2.30pm

Friday 10.30am to 2.30 pm

There is also a community café offering tasty meals at very reasonable prices.

The atmosphere is friendly and welcoming to all and you may want to volunteer for the buddy and befriending scheme calling lonely people.
