Chloe is 17years old
Before the programme Chloe admits that she was out of control getting into fights being the BULLY at school, due to Chloe’s behaviour she was expelled from school and sent to a behavioural unit. Life for Chloe at home was strained with the family, especially mom our relationship was at its lowest . I wasn’t a nice person to be around and didn’t like being told what to do.
Chloe’s decision to change came when she was at a meeting with Jo from Entrust and was told about the Princes Trust programme running from Tamworth Community Fire Station. A meeting was set up with Sharron the Programme Leader, Chloe was intrigued and decided to give it a go.
Chloe stated that she was amazed and really liked it, finally she could see a future for herself. Despite only having been there for three weeks, she feels she has changed becoming less angry and more motivated, her relationship with family and mom is now FANTASTIC.
Chloe was asked to do this case study by Sharron, to talk about her journey wanting to help others who are in or have been in her situation……. And YOU can change for the better.
So watch this space….
