Emergency / NHS / Social Work / Military

For the men and women who run towards the situations that most people run away from.

Blue Lighthouse Delivery Partner Badge

The emergency services, NHS, social workers, & military are all careers that attract people that have a sense of duty and a willingness to put others before themselves. Unfortunately, the reality of these jobs is often an increasing workload, decreasing staffing, and regular exposure to high-stress traumatic situations. In jobs that can often feel thankless, it's important to have a way to find perspective in personal time.

The personal experience I've had in my previous career and the positive effects I've observed in both myself and the hundreds of people I've taught to surf and paddleboard in the years since, has cemented for me the clear benefits of surfing on physical and mental wellbeing. I'm driven to share it with as many people as possible.

Blue Coast lessons & tours are offered at a 25% discount to all members of the emergency services, social workers, NHS workers, & military personnel. Just use the code downtime when booking using our online system with your work email address. I hope this encourages more people to get in the sea, have a go, and feel the benefits.

We are also a delivery partner of Blue Lighthouse Surf Therapy CIC, a non-profit social enterprise offering a funded learn to surf program supporting the health & wellbeing of those serving our communities in Scotland. To find out more and complete a self-referral for a completely funded place, please visit the Blue Lighthouse website.

Thank you for doing a great job.
