Tim is 16 years old, was excluded from school and lives with his mother who suffers from ill health. He was frequently involved with the Police, used cannabis on a daily basis and had no real ambition.

We engaged with Tim and found that he enjoyed training in the gym. By taking him for workouts twice a week the White Gold worker gradually gained his trust, discussed his life style and supported him to make changes.

Tim has not offended for six months and, of his own volition, has sought assistance to stop his cannabis use. He is actively seeking employment with the support of his, (much fitter), worker.
