Anglicare: Highlighting our Community Education Program Grant Recipients
March 13th, 2018

Program: Waves of Wellness

Anglicare have partnered with Waves of Wellness creating a program designed to support individuals experiencing complex mental health challenges through innovative, recovery-focused projects.

The program entitled Waves of Wellness is aimed at youth between the ages of 13 and 25 who struggle with their mental health through surf therapy. The grant will cover the full running of the program, providing three blocks of 8 week cognitive behavioural therapy alongside surf lessons to facilitate positive therapy outcomes.

The program aims to reach out to 30 young adults across three different areas within Sydney. Providing a safe space where they can bond over their common mental health struggles in an inclusive environment, alongside learning about surf safety and survival skills.

Key Objectives:

-Waves of Wellness will service individuals who are facing complex mental health challenges
-Combine aspects of physical and mental health into recovery
-Strengthen social skills, de-stigmatising mental health struggles
-Touch on a variety of recovery tools which includes spirituality
-Improved self-confidence

Expected outcomes from the program

Anglicare aim to strengthen the connection of people who are isolated and lonely in the community. They plan to bring mental health discussion to the forefront of mainstream community interactions, to facilitate a shift in the way people view and treat mental health.

Their goal is to provide each participant with the skills and tools to not only maintain their own health and wellbeing, but to also positively influence their relationships with friends and family.

Anglicare expect to significantly reduce loneliness and isolation for participants of this program, fostering new and existing relationships. This will in turn connect participants with an established community at the culmination of the program through local churches.

Participants are expected to gain skills to develop and maintain better quality relationships in their lives, as well as solidify connections within the program group that will translate into friendships outside the program.

We were delighted to visit one of our 2017/ 2018 Community Education Program grant recipients Ocean Heroes Australia recently🏆🎖️Looking good Grant Bowen (our WA State Manager) 😀

Ocean Heroes is stoked to announce that we have received a grant from Ansvar Insurance to put towards purchasing a van!

The grant will allow us to expand our reach to more kids at more beaches by being able to become more mobile. This will be especially important for kids and families in regional WA.
