Chloe’s Story

Chloe is unable to walk and is a full-time wheelchair user. Through a lack of NHS physiotherapy Chloe started attending Heel and Toe many moons ago as she requires lots of daily stretching exercises, balance tasks and assistance to stand and weight bear as much as she is able.

Chloe loves attending Heel and Toe and works really well with all of the conductors, finding her sessions enjoyable and fun. She takes part in as much as she can at Heel and Toe, attending events such as bag packs, onesie walk, coach trips, etc. she has also assisted with numerous tin collections. Outside of Heel and Toe Chloe is a budding actress and attended the Pauline Quirke Academy (PQA) to study performing arts, she also attended New College Durham to study production and performing arts.

Chloe is a very happy, cheerful young lady who never lets her disability get her down or let it stop her from doing anything she wants to do. She is very sociable and chatty, and finds it easy to make friends wherever she goes. Chloe dreams of being an actress and would love to star in Hollyoaks as it is her favourite TV soap.
