Tuart Place, a Fremantle based not-for-profit organisation, is a service for people who have grown up in difficult circumstances and the reason behind Lyn’s new lease on life.
After being taken from her family at five years of age and experiencing difficulties as a result, Lyn started attending social events and life skills courses at the centre after a recommendation from her daughter.
‘I thought I would only go once or twice and forget about it, but that’s not the case,’ said Lyn. ‘I’ve now been going to Tuart Place twice a week and my life has been turned around.
‘Before attending Tuart Place I was down and out, but now I’m learning to live positively and my quality of life is so much better.’
To celebrate its first year, Tuart Place will hold a morning tea on June 12.
