I think (worker) is amazing. She has changed my life and I don't know what I'd do without her. (Worker) has made big changes to my life, she is the only person that believes in me and is there for me. I wouldn't be doing well if it wasn't for her. She makes me happier.

I would be back in prison if I didn't have (worker). She's a massive help to me and my family.
