The Wave Project is the UK's surf therapy charity, helping young people improve confidence through surfing. Their award-winning surf therapy courses are proven to help clients increase confidence and reduce anxiety. In addition, their health courses are planned and tailored to individual clients.
To take part, participants must be referred by someone working with them professionally. This can be a support worker, teacher, doctor, counsellor or similar. Courses last six weeks and generally run in spring and autumn, but the dates can be flexible.
Curt was overwhelmed by the generosity of the members of Kinson Lodge, explaining that these funds would provide a further 33 sessions.
Altogether, Wave Project Dorset continues to grow bigger and better. This year they have had six fully funded six-week courses as well as 30 surf clubs planned and booked, all while they work towards becoming a more sustainable charity through working with local businesses, communities, and Dorset NHS.
In their words: 'None of this could have been achieved without the huge support the project has had from local volunteers.'
