How Life Has Changed For Chris

Chris was 23 years old when he during a moment of madness on a lads holiday in Magaluf and broke his neck shallow-diving. It left him paralysed, and in a wheelchair. He is single and has a full-time live-in Carer. Chris had worked for the licensed trade for 8 years before his accident, where he was Assistant Manager. Working in the licensed trade was all he knew, his Mum had ran pubs for as long as he can remember. When Chris moved into a new flat he turned to the Charity for help with specially-adapted kitchen appliances. We helped by making Chris’ life a little bit more comfortable at home, as he copes with living with disability.
