Multiply – Kian’s Story

Multiply – Kian’s Story


The Impact Team have been busy at Better Connect recently, collecting stories across our programmes and hearing about how the support is truly changing peoples lives.

This month, we had the pleasure of meeting Kian who had received support from CJ. CJ works for York Based CIC Coterminous and is a keyworker on the Multiply programme.

Before meeting CJ, Kian was struggling with alcohol abuse, felt lonely and isolated and lacked direction in his life. His finances had become out of control and he needed help to make changes.

CJ supported Kian to regain control of his life, gain his confidence back, control of his finances and gain employment! Kian is now becoming the father he wants to be for his daughter and finally making himself proud.

Thank you so much to Kian and CJ for meeting with us and sharing your stories! A huge thank you to Film-maker Kev at the fabulous Inspired Youth
