Get Hooked On Fishing

We are an angling charity with projects across the UK which provide positive opportunities for children, young people, their families and communities.

Founded 2008

  • Mission statement

    The provision, or assistance in the provision, of facilities for all aspects of angling to create opportunities for participation as a means of engaging young people who
    by reason of their youth, poverty, social or economic circumstances lack such opportunities. In particular Get Hooked on Fishing will seek to provide, through their
    participation, gateways and pathways to development for young people at risk from crime, drug use, educational exclusion, poor health and other forms of social exclusion.

    Our vision is to:-

    • To raise awareness amongst young people that there are viable alternatives to the commission of crime and anti-social behaviour.
    • To promote the sport of angling to young people who at present do not have opportunities to participate.
    • To use the activity of angling to create alternative activities and gateways for those young people at risk from crime, drug use, educational exclusion, poor
    health and other forms of social exclusion.
    • To convince all stakeholders, through evidence based monitoring and research, that the creation of Get Hooked on Fishing projects is a very effective way of engaging young people and to promote the sport of angling long term.
    • To achieve the above through the ongoing development of the Get Hooked on Fishing Charity.
