Nature’s Challenge have made significant contributions towards the holistic support we provide to some of our most vulnerable young people in Exeter area. Symon has played pivotal roles in helping us to reach a few our difficult-to-reach care leavers. Through Symon’s great knowledge of Devon’s local communities and the network he has built over the years, his role was crucial in helping us trace an elusive young man whose disappearance got a multi-agency group of professionals intensely worried due to his mental health issues which put him at high risk of self-harming and suicide ideation. Symon has the knack to connect with young people on an emotional level and inspire them to engage in educational and adventurous outdoor activities. He is also a great mentor of boys.
