Andi Brierley had a very tough life as a child. He was sent to prison aged just 17 years. You can read about Andi here in our real-life story section.
Andi’s story is helping many young people.
It was used in Leeds with young people who had been in custody. The young people said it helped them believe that opportunities in life exist for them too.
A young person was encouraged to read Andi’s story before he went to custody. Now he’s out of prison and works as a young people’s mentor. Excellent!
We’ve heard Andi’s story has been shown to many other young people, including those who live in children’s homes. It’s helped to give them hope.
