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."(Pic: Matt Lloyd, Project Worker)
