Waves for Change (W4C) works in communities affected by violence, poverty and conflict, where mental health services are often stigmatized and under-resourced. By working in partnership with local community members, we identify, train and resource mentors, who we work with to open programmes that service the youth of their own home communities.

Sharkspotters is a pioneering shark safety and research organisation that has attracted international attention because of the novel way it pro-actively reduces interactions and conflict between recreational water users and great white sharks.
