Alex joined the LEAP project in August of 2016 and attends regularly, however despite our best efforts we initially struggled to find anything that inspired or motivated Alex.

When Alex was offered a chance on the climbing wall at Rock UK we were all surprised that he accepted the challenge. We were even more surprised to see him get stuck in and scale the wall.

Alex, along with his climbing partner Alyn, has just completed his part 1 NICAS climbing award and would like to progress further.

This achievement has helped Alex gain the confidence to apply for a catering course in Merthyr College which begins this September.
