The Wave Project is set to go national with four new projects being launched across the UK!
New projects are set to launch this year in South Wales, London and the Isle of Wight and Scotland.
They will use the Wave Project’s award-winning model of running free surfing courses led by volunteers to help young people improve their self-confidence, resiliency and wellbeing.
About the Wave Project
The Wave Project is an award-winning not for profit company that helps young people feel more positive and overcome challenges through surfing! We run a peer-led programme that has proven benefits for young people who need to improve their confidence, self-esteem or motivation.
All our sessions are delivered free of charge to clients.This is made possible by our fantastic team of volunteers who help run sessions. We also run an opt-in surf club for clients who have completed one of our courses – this is free too.
The Wave Project accepts referrals from anyone working professionally with vulnerable children and young people up to the age of 21. We also run some specific projects for adults with disabilities. Our past referrers have included the NHS, schools, CAMHS, social services, adult mental health services, GPs, family support services, counsellors and bereavment charities.
Past clients have found themselves better able to cope with the daily pressures of life, which in some cases has transformed their ability to tackle problems. If you’d like to know more, please contact us and request our latest evaluation report.
