Forward Assist Angling Academy funded by Sir James Knott Trust

Forward Assist are delighted to report that the Forward Assist Angling Academy has received funding from The Sir James Knott Trust  to deliver free angling sessions to armed forces veterans of all ages throughout 2013-14. The much needed funding boost will allow able-bodied and disabled veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder to continue to access weekly fishing trips at a variety of North East venues that include lakes, rivers and coastal locations. Many of the veterans have taken up angling as a hobby outside of the sessions but benefit from veteran specific sessions and several have gone on to support other marginalized groups experience the therapeutic benefits of angling under the supervision of a qualified angling coach.
