The Wave Project

The Wave Project is a charity from Newquay, UK, that provides evidence-based surf therapy programmes to help young people ages 8 to 13 feel less anxious and more positive, and improve their soft skills.

The Project takes referrals from statutory agencies (schools, the NHS, mental health agencies), and provides each participant surf-therapy sessions, a 1-1 volunteer mentor and social activities. 

Since 2010, over 2,200 young people across the UK have accessed The Wave Project’s sessions, and over 2,500 people have volunteered as mentors to the young participants.
