Harnessing the power of the ocean - How the Wave Project changes lives with surf therapy

Harnessing the power of the ocean - How the Wave Project changes lives with surf therapy

For over a decade, the Wave Project has been connecting young people to the transformative power of the ocean through surf therapy.


The Wave Project has helped over 2000 children and young people who are suffering with their mental health, some as young as eight years old. Their sessions and courses provide participants with lifelong skills that help enhance self-confidence, improve resilience and develop social skills - all while building their trust with other children and adults.

With the opportunity to train as a volunteer after accessing the surf therapy courses, participants have the option to help and encourage other young people too.

This year, to ensure their work can continue, the charity is appealing for donations to The Big Give platform to raise a further £44,000 of their £88,000 target - ending on Tuesday 6th December.

If you would like to make a donation to help improve the lives of children through surf therapy, please head to their campaign page Changing children's lives through surf therapy (thebiggive.org.uk).

We’re so proud to support this incredible charity through the dryrobe® Warmth Project. A large portion of our funding will be used to employ a Project Coordinator in London, helping vulnerable young people from inner cities experience the benefit of surf therapy. They work by building trusting relationships with young people and their families, as well as establishing and maintaining a community around the project.

We are also supporting this incredible charity with a Limited Edition Wave Project dryrobe® Advance - with 100% of the profits supporting the incredible work that the charity does.
