Skyler’s story

Skyler, 10 lives in Cornwall with his big brother Ryder, mum Tracey and dad Steve.

Skyler has had a really tough time over the past few years – his dad was very unwell, and he also sadly lost his beloved grandfather.

These events affected Skyler’s mental wellbeing, making him feel very anxious and sad. His GP referred him to The Wave Project which has really helped him to hopeful and happy again.

BBC Children In Need funds Sam, a project worker who has supported Skyler and who coordinates The Wave Project’s Prescription Surf project, which is also part of our A Million & Me funding programme.
