“Surf Action promotes good mental health through personal development, education and employment with veterans supporting veterans”
The primary objective of Surf Action is to promote and protect the physical and psychological well being of serving and former serving members of the armed forces and the blue-light emergency services and their families who are suffering physical and/or psychological difficulties as a result of their service and to assist them into making the transition into civilian life.
Surf Action promotes good mental health through personal development, education and employment and empowers its service users to lead healthy, fulfilled and independent lives and to become valued and active members of their community. Core to achieving this is the use of the blue gym concept and involving our service users in surfing and other high intensity water-sports in the magnificent coastal environment around us.
The development of the ‘Joined-Up Recovery’ model by the charity gives the service users and their families a bespoke pathway which they can access in order to achieve the best outcomes for themselves. It has been trialled and refined by Surf Action and evaluated by Dr Nick Caddick of the ‘Peter Harrison Centre for Disability Sport’ at Loughborough University.
