Wave started in Muswell Hill, North London in 2009. Since then we’ve demonstrated how we're all valued equally through various inclusive activities.
With over a decade of experience, we're now focusing on helping other communities to mix. Each community's needs are different, but we hope that what we have done in Muswell Hill might give you some inspiration.

If you're interested in establishing a form of mixed socialising in your area, visit our Get Involved page to see how you can make a difference. And if you’re interested in us, we want to connect with you!
Jess and Abe
Performing with Abe gives me confidence. Sometimes I get a bit nervous but when I have Abe beside me, I know everything’s going to be OK
Ben and Michael
I'm really grateful to have met Michael through Wave Cafe. His infectious smile and enthusiasm really rubs off on everyone at Wave and always helps put us all in a good mood
Being in Wave Club makes me feel connected to different people. I feel free to speak up and express my disability
Liz and Caroline
Challenge has become an absolute lifeline to me; I genuinely don't know how I would cope without it
According to our research, only 12% of people often mix socially with anyone with different abilities. Yet 81% are open to the idea.
We researched attitudes towards people with and without learning disabilities mixing, and the potential for community change.
See the video highlights and click below for a preview of the research findings.
Wave For Change Day was a special event to celebrate 10 years of Wave.
A huge thank you to everyone who came along, shared stories, thoughts, and inspired each other with your desire for change.
