To provide those who suffer from mental health issues including drug & alcohol dependancy, free angling tuition and free access to equipment.

About the project

 

Reel recovery is an unincorperated organisation formed with the primary aim to provide service users who are either in active recovery or on the precapice of change to begin their own journy of recovery with a friendly, Non-judgmental enviroment in which to learn a new sport activity.  

Angling is proven to have holistic and benifical effects on mental health, including drug and alcohol addiction, Individuals who are used to isolation or particular peer groups would find it empowering to feel welcome, respected and appreciated. To feel a part of a community without stigma is important.  

 

 

 

                   

 

We at Reel Recovery already provide free tuition, guidance and free access to equipment sourced through donations of used and sometimes broken equipment. We would like to purchase some more suitable equipment and to be able to take groups on organised fishing expiditions and allow individuals to grow and feel accepted in a worthwhile community spirited organisation.  

To achieve this We would need  £10,000

 This would allow us to purchase insurance, source and rent a premesis, Purchase enough fishing equipment and tackle to allow groups to fish at any one time, It would allow us to deliver classes, buy a projector to deliver visual training. To train our coaches in 1st aid and water safety and help boost our advertisement and help with admin costs. It would also allow us to maintain the upkeep on our beach access vehicle that we use to transport equipment and disabled clients.
