Mental Health and the benefits of fishing

Tackling Minds requires a vehicle with insurance to cater for the demand for our service.

Tackling Minds is a not for profit fishing organisation. We run a  number of Angling events for people who are suffering with Mental Health issues, Social Deprivation, addiction and recovery, families, disabilities and Long-Term Health Conditions.

We want to show people that  FISHING IS NOT A SPORT, IT'S A WAY OF LIFE!

Please see some of the work we do here:   Tackling Minds Facebook 

Our aim is to:

1. Increase participation in angling to:

2. Increase the numbers of people getting active outdoors through angling.

3.Improve the health and well-being of those that take part.

4.Help people and communities develop with skills, education, volunteering and facilities.

5.Connect more people to nature through angling for their well-being and to improve the environment.

6. Increase the economic impact of angling and in particular deliver economic benefits in rural communities and revenue to clubs, fisheries and businesses.

There is a huge demand to use our service, and in order to reach a much wider audience, we now require transport (van) and insurance. This would enable us to transport the large amount of equipment that we use to run our groups.

At the moment, we are relying on our Volunteers to transport the equipment to our chosen venues. Unfortunately, this has become a huge problem, as there isn't enough cars available for each session.  This has limited us to the amount of sessions we are able to run.

If we managed to raise enough funding to purchase our own vehicle and insurance, it would enable Tackling Minds to run our groups on a daily basis.

Thank you for taking the time to read our story.  I hope you find it within yourself to support the great work we are all doing.
