About the role

Ocean Mind is a Not For Profit Charity supporting young people experiencing mental health issues, social isolation and disabilities. Ocean Mind’s alternative therapeutic surfing programs are community-based and recovery-oriented, complementing clinical and acute care.

Our service involves young people aged 8-18 participating in six-week therapeutic surfing programs delivered by professional youth workers, surf instructors and a 1:1 matched local mentor, with the potential to then transfer to the Ocean Mind surf club to continue their surfing.

Ocean Mind commenced in 2016 with 2 pilot programs based on a successful model from the UK. Since then the organisation has provided 2 full summer seasons of programs (4 x 6-week programs) and the demand for our services continues to increase. 

Ocean Mind has successfully secured funds to enable continued services over the next 3 years. The organisation has a major local sponsor and strong relationships with philanthropic organisation.  

Ocean Mind has grown rapidly over the past 2 years. The organisation is looking for an experienced director to join our team in the role of Chair. The Chair position will provide leadership to the board and strategically move the organisation into the future.
