Wave Project response to Coronavirus
The Wave Project has responded to the coronavirus pandemic by releasing staff to support other charities tackling the crisis.
The charity’s team of project coordinators are working in the community to help provide essential deliveries for vulnerable people, including those who are homeless and disabled. Other staff are supporting food banks and providing food parcels to people who are self isolating. They are working with hundreds of Wave Project volunteers from across the country to provide additional support.
Wave Project social prescribing lead Sam Henderson-Palmer has been seconded to Volunteer Cornwall to support the relief effort locally. He is supporting homeless charity St Petroc’s to provide food and prescriptions to homeless people. Other staff are working one or two days a week on similar projects in their local communities across the UK, bringing in Wave Project surf mentors to help.
