Chris’s story

Justlife has been working with Chris for the past 6 weeks. This is what he has to say:

“I came into Justlife about 6 weeks ago. I was in a real mess. I was using drugs a lot and had split up with my partner of 9 1/2 years. 

The first week that I came in Matt could see that I was in a bad way and saw me everyday that week. I had never been so low and in such a bad situation before. I had always had work and a home, so I knew that things were really bad, I just didn’t know what to do.

Matt was able to connect me with a drugs worker – Jo Byrne, counselling and supprt. He contacted some housing providers and is working with me to find a better home. He has given me so much support and has been a brilliant person to talk to. He has made me see that I need to turn my life around for me. I want to do this, to make changes for myself. Justlife is always there for advice.

I have had drugs counselling and stuff before but nothing has worked. The advice and support that Justlife offer is working for me. 

I really want to turn my life around now.”
