The project on the Isle of Wight began with a pilot scheme in 2015. The success of the trial led to us securing NHS funding to expand the project to employ a coordinator. Since then, the project has grown to run our fully funded surf-therapy courses for 60 new Island children each year, and now has a busy and active surf-club. Funding is a challenge for all charities, but thanks to the generosity of local businesses and  funders such as WightAid, we have been able to reach over 250 local children to date.
