Matt - Queensland

“What the brain can conceive and believe, you can achieve,” says Matt.

He has been in and out of jail, in rehab and moved cities when life got difficult. At 33 he wanted to stop running from his problems and past, and change his future. That’s when he met us.

“There was no judgement with the Red Cross social workers. I laid out things that I wanted to accomplish and found that with collaboration, partnership and support I started to accomplish the things I wanted.”
