Glenn, who is profoundly deaf, wanted to improve his quality of life, and add structure to his week.

After a joint-meeting with his mother, who helped communicate via sign language, Glenn’s ROAD Navigator discovered he has a love for the outdoors and even had his own allotment.

ROAD sourced Glenn a place on Durham Wildlife Trust’s Naturally Social programme, which supports mental and physical well-being through engagement with nature.

The programme was even able to purchase wellies and a waterproof jacket, allowing Glenn to get started the very next day.

Many months later, Glenn continues to be a vital part of the heathland maintenance team at Durham Wildlife Trust!
