The Wave Project in Brighton originated with a pilot scheme in 2015, made possible by the support of enthusiastic volunteers and the local community. Since then The Wave Project in Brighton has worked with local children and young people, helping to change their lives through surfing.
We are very excited to have been granted funding by the Henry Smith Charity. This funding means that we are able to deliver six surf therapy courses to sixty local children and young people each year for the next two years. Originally lead by Charlotte Whitehead and Laura McManus, our current Project Coordinator Elena Heieck is stoked to take the project forward with the support of the awesome team of volunteer surf mentors on Southwick Beach.
We had a lot of fun in 2018, 2019 has been a blast so far and we are looking forward to delivering surf therapy courses at Southwick again in the new year! Don’t hesitate to get in contact if you are interested in getting involved.
