We are so happy to be working with the Wave Project again this year.
The Wave Project's initial aim was to use volunteers to provide one-to-one surfing lessons for young people with mental health issues as a way of getting them outside, doing physical exercise and feeling more confident about themselves.The first project achieved outstanding results.
The project has developed an award-winning intervention that uses local surfers to help young people reduce anxiety and improve their emotional health. Founded by a group of volunteers in Cornwall you can now find the Wave Project spread across the country. Here are a few words from Katie the South Devon Coordinator for the Wave Project.
"Wonder Fields and the Wave Projects Partnership continues to grow year on year. We are grateful to them for allowing us to be on site again during the festival so please come and find out more and get involved with what we will be doing, you will even have a chance to hear me talking about the project on their village green stage over the weekend. The Wave Project are always looking for new referrals, volunteers and fundraisers. Please give us a like on social media and check out our website for more information https://www.waveproject.co.uk/". You can help us to support this amazing cause by donating directly to them when you purchase a ticket and visiting their stall at the festival. We will keep you updated on their events through out the summer and if you are local please go and support them. ❤️ #mentalhealth #playoutdoors #supporteveryone #getinvolved #surfingislife #nature #heavenindevon #joinusinthefields #mentalhealthawareness
