“Before Toe By Toe, I was living in a deep dark hole. Everyone else understood things and I didn’t. When I was given Toe By Toe, I felt a rope ladder had been thrown down to me. It didn’t have any rungs… I had to build them myself and that has taken time. Now I feel I’m near the top and I can see daylight. I feel sorry for anyone stuck at the bottom.”
