About Transforming Lives for Good (TLG)

TLG (Transforming Lives for Good) are a Christian charity providing support to struggling children and families. They help make change happen for children facing issues such as school exclusion, poverty and holiday hunger.

They provide a vision for churches to help offer practical support in and out of school. Their help might involve a volunteer coach giving one-to-one mentoring, intensive support for excluded children, or offering food to children on free school meals.

Based in Bradford with 200 partner churches, 80 staff and 800 trained volunteers, the organisation aims to go from helping 750 struggling children in 2017 to over 11,000 by 2020.

There are TLG centres in all four nations of the UK. The team unite regularly with morning prayers and national meetings three times a year, where Chief Executive Tim Morfin talks about how TLG will reach more young people. New starters get a copy of his book, ‘Out of the Ordinary’.
