About us

Wave stands for We’re All Valued Equally.

This drives everything we do. We like that our work can be summed up in the two meanings of the word ‘wave’, a universal sign of friendship and a powerful force that can break down barriers. 

Our aim is to use the experience we have gained from starting and running inclusive groups in North London, to help other communities to mix.

How we started

Wave was started by two parents with first hand experience of the challenges of integrating a child with learning disabilities into their community. They realised that the greatest barrier they faced can’t be overcome by legislation or policy. It needs a change in the attitudes of those who have little or no experience of disability. 

The Christian faith of the founders, Bernice and Celia, motivated them to work toward a more inclusive society, based on a belief that in God’s eyes we’re all valued equally. Wave activities have always welcomed and included those of all faiths or none.
