In this video, Chris shares powerful testimony of his recovery journey in which he established a successful community football group called ‘Turning Corners’. It starts with Karen (Chris’s Local Area Coordinator) reflecting on her role alongside Chris. This included initially helping Chris to understand his welfare rights, find more suitable accommodation, introducing him to an adult learning course and walking alongside him as he took the steps towards bringing his vision of ‘Turning Corners’ to life.
Chris’s incredible achievements were in part due to the positive and trusting relationship between him and Karen in which his strengths and gifts were recognised and nurtured. He comments towards the end of the film that their relationship helped him transform his life, concluding that he now sees it as his duty to help others which he is evidently doing through his major contribution in his community.
