The Wave Project is pioneering the way we harness the power of the ocean though surf therapy. It's the first of its kind in the UK to use surfing in the form of therapy and in 2018 it became the world's first charity to offer 'surfing on perscription' via the NHS.
It's with this shared love for the ocean and waves of determination to help others, that's inspired and drawn us to support The Wave Project and their vision: To make surf therapy available to any child who needs it.
The Wave Project takes children and young people from all backgrounds experiencing mental, emotional, health and social challenges, offering surf therapy as a form of therapeutic support. Their aim is to change the lives of young people by using surfing, peer mentoring and friendship; giving them the skills, confidence and self-belief they need to achieve their goals, no matter what additional challenges they face.
Surf therapy is at the core of what they do, as well as offering Adaptative Surfing, Beach School, Wave Rangers and Surf to Work.
To help support their work across the UK, we have committed to a three year partnership of financial investment and fundraising activities throughout our store network.
