Learning to surf!
We are PROUD – L is nearly 18, and supporting other young people to learn to surf.
Our amazing Supervising Social Worker – Hilde in the South West is very excited to share an achievement of a foster child called she has supported together with his fostering family for many years.
He decided to be a volunteer for the ‘Wave Project’ in Cornwall. He has been trained and accepted to volunteer with the project and spends three different evenings in the water to support children and young people to learn to surf. The project uses surfing to help disabled children and young people improve their emotional and physical well-being. L recently helped a young person who was scared of the water. His kind and patient manners encouraged the young person to enter the water with a surf board to try out lying on the board. L supervised the young person and ensured that he was safe and had fun in the water.
One of the qualified surf instructors from the Wave Project sent a positive text message to the carers and praised L for doing amazingly well and offering young people great support.
We are all proud of L for volunteering with the Wave Project and using his good social skills and his surfing ability to support disabled children.
