There’s people out there like me. We want to help you. There’s always a choice. There’s always hope.

Claire is a youth worker in South Wales, who has spent 25 years helping people caught up in drugs and knives turn their lives around.

She recently worked with a 14-year-old boy who was tasked with delivering a package containing £5,000 worth of drugs, by people he believed to be his friends. Those same people robbed him, and when he couldn’t repay the debt, the safety of his family was threatened, and he started carrying a knife to protect himself.

Now, with the support of Claire, along with a range of local support services, his former life is unrecognisable. He’s gained confidence and self-esteem, as well as a sense of purpose. He’s settled down with a partner and has a baby on the way.
