Greenhook Fishing

RCN 1158043, Plymouth

Greenhook Fishing has been working to create training opportunities that will lead to employment in Cooperative ventures for individuals, including ex-Armed Forces personnel, who through through addiction, homelessness, mental-health issues or criminality, have been unable to secure employment or who find traditional models of employment difficult. We aim to restore a sense of purpose, self-esteem and self-worth in our participants, helping them to help themselves. We aim to do this through employment within our Cooperative ventures to engage more positively in their local community and society more generally.

Greenhook Fishing is a charity (CIO) that works with individuals who, through troubled histories, are unable to function in traditional work environments. We are dedicated to building sustainable futures by creating cooperative ventures in Boatbuilding and Fishing. We focus on giving our participants structure and support whilst building sail-powered fishing vessels with the intention of fishing sustainably. We ensure the CIO remains environmentally conscious throughout our work.

 

We have now completed our first fishing vessel, the Geoffrey Rowe and the fitting out of our support vessel Twilight both of which are now afloat in Plymouth.

We are now seeking funding of £20,000 to complete the second of our fishing vessels the Alice May; her completion will create the opportunity for further employment and the creation of full-time employment.

Our community workshop provides a safe, constructive place for our participants, where they can develop skills, both practical and personal, that will enable them to contribute once again to society.

We are building sustainable futures by providing the skills and resources which will enable individuals to adapt and feel confident living in today's society. Be a part of our journey by donating today!
