Liquid Therapy was created in 2011 to provide one to one support for young people who wanted to experience surfing but where unable to participate in mainstream opportunities.
Each year the foundation has grown and evolved to work with individuals, families, and community groups from across the country and globe. Each season we deliver a range of programs focused on meeting the needs of each surfer.
Our journey has seen us achieve the Arthur Guinness Award (2014), Shore Shots Film Festival Award (2016), CARA Inclusion Award (2018), the Donegal Volunteer Centre Award- Program of the year (2018 and 2021), the National Lottery – Good Cause of the year award (2019) and Rethink Irelands – Social enterprise of the year awardee (2021).

From experiencing the sea for first time to catching your own waves our mission is provide the perfect platform to empower each individual to be able to reach their aquatic potential!
