The Wave Project has been working with isolated young people in Sussex since 2015.

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 and 2019, and we are looking forward to delivering surf therapy courses at Southwick again as soon as possible! Don’t hesitate to get in contact if you are interested in getting involved.
