Partnerships & Collaborations


Liquid Therapy is a registered service provider for the MACE project, which is supported by the European Union’s INTERREG VA Programme. In 2022 will be delivering our A drop in the Ocean (ADITO) programme as a socially prescribed intervention, supporting children and families who have been affected by trauma. The project aims to transform the lives of vulnerable children and their families who are most at risk from a range of challenges and difficulties in their lives, by identifying, intervening early and providing nurturing and support within their own homes and communities on a cross border basis. The project is being managed jointly by the CAWT Partnership and TUSLA (the Child and Family Agency)

Irish Gap Year

Each year Liquid Therapy partners with Irish Gap Year, a Gap Year Association accredited program provider, and provides a series of programmes working together to offer our surfers a surfing Big Brother or Big Sister. The programmes work with the GAP year volunteer programme creating a unique experience for all involved. Our programmes focus on positive mental health through activity and social interactions.


Liquid Therapy, supported by the Rethink Ireland programme, aims to expand the A Drop in the Ocean (ADITO) Mental Health and Well-Being Programme in the Bundoran, Ballyshannon, and Donegal Town areas. The primary objective is to offer the program to schools, youth groups and individuals in these areas. The project involves conducting 3 programmes in year 1, followed by 6 programmes in year 2, and finally 9 programmes in year 3. Liquid Therapy is looking forward to developing new partnerships in the education and youth sectors over the 3 year project.


In addition, Liquid Therapy is a member of ISTO, the International Surf Therapy Organization. ISTO is a collective of the world’s leading surf therapy practitioners, clinicians, researchers, and influencers working together to advance understanding in the sector through research. ISTO is an information hub for surf therapy prescriptions and a place for sharing in the practitioner community.


During Autumn 2023, a selected group of “blue communities” from France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, and Spain, will host a series of European Blue Surf Festivals. The festivals will combine sporting activities, cultural events and educational seminars. Blue Surf Festivals as well as promoting inclusion, sustainability and surf culture, aim to further develop and promote the work of the INCLUSEA Network on developing common European adaptive surf methodologies. BLUESURFEST is a pan European project which is co-financed by the Erasmus + Sport Programme.
