Baba's Story

“You accepted me again, changed and supported me again and got me back on track, you can’t put a price on that.”

Baba recently returned to us for some respite; he became addicted to painkillers and so we offered him a placement at Chatterton Hey to give him space and help to come off the painkillers and find his way again. Baba has succeeded in this and reflected on his progress, in his own words “you accepted me again, changed and supported me again and got me back on track, you can’t put a price on that… Chatterton has supported me throughout everything.”

Baba went to Langley’s celebration at The House of Lords in September to represent the Trust and was really looking forward to it; he was excited to be able to share 5 minutes of his story to an appreciative audience who understand how hard it can be for anyone to work through failure in their life but know what a sweet victory it can be when they come through, as Baba has done!
