The Wave Project Scotland
The Wave Project
This group offers peer-led surfing lessons as a therapy for young people with mental health problems. Clients receive a six week surfing course with trained 'surf mentors' followed by regular surf sessions through the surf club. At the club participants meet other young surfers and develop their surfing/social skills. As clients progress, they are encouraged to become volunteers. The project will develop the surf club, increase provision and build sustainability by reducing reliance on surf schools.
Funding requested: £35,500
