Life Story: Chloe's Story

Chloe who is 18 years old, was introduced to Circles Network by a Transitions Social Worker, who was concerned because Chloe was no longer able to access day services or activities, due to her deteriorating mental health. We went to meet Chloe, her Mum and her brother and were thrilled and encouraged to discover that there were lots of people who wanted to support Chloe by becoming part of her Circle - so we arranged Chloe’s first Circle meeting.

The large lounge was full and the kettle was boiled several times for tea! Chloe took photographs and even gave an impromptu singing performance with her friend Charlotte! Chloe’s Circle looked at activities that Chloe enjoys and who could support her with these. They also looked at activities Chloe might like to try and ways of easing any anxieties that Chloe or her Mum might have.

Chloe is now gardening, dancing, cooking, doing arts and crafts and lots more with members of her Circle and she is able to pay them or reimburse them or buy them thank you gifts with her direct payments. All this after only one Circle meeting! We are very much looking forward to seeing what else Chloe and her Circle will achieve!
