Our widely read newsletter is always full of the latest news about Changes Bristol! We run regular articles such as:

Additionally, we list upcoming Changes events as well as public events we think might interest our members. We let our readers know about free or low cost courses they may find helpful and organisations that can offer support with a variety of issues.

As you can imagine, all this takes a lot of work so we really welcome contributions and are happy to accept help! We want our newsletter to reflect our membership and love sharing the experiences and achievements you all have in your recovery journey with the wider community.
