The Wave Project extends surf therapy project in St Andrews
The UK's leading surf therapy charity, The Wave Project, has extended its surf therapy programme at West Sands beach in St Andrews for another year, after a successful pilot which saw vulnerable young people from the local area complete an initial course of surf therapy.
The new site, which becomes the charity’s 33rd project location in the UK and the second in Scotland in addition to a project in Dunbar, will offer courses of surf therapy for vulnerable children and young people from the end of August.
The charity is hoping to reach another 80 young people in St Andrews by August next year through their surf therapy programme, which aims to build confidence, self-esteem and resilience.
