Tell us about fishing and your wellbeing and you could win a FREE 12-month fishing licence

We are supporting a campaign this Mental Health Awareness Week to encourage anglers to get out fishing again even if they haven’t been for a while, and to highlight the benefits to non-anglers too. Your answers will help understand how going fishing can have an effect on mental health and wellbeing.

Please take part in the survey. – we’ve had feedback that it only takes about 1 minute!

For the chance to win* your next 12-month 3-rod licence for coarse and trout or salmon and migratory trout (it’s your choice!) please confirm your email address at the end, and then tick the box to say we can contact you – thanks!

Survey closes at 12:00 at midday on Thursday 27th April.

Get Fishing for Wellbeing from the Angling Trust

The Get Fishing for Wellbeing project is for everyone who can benefit from involving recreational fishing (also called angling) in the way that they manage conditions that benefit from a “Social Prescribing” approach to healthcare. For that reason, we have loosely arranged the content and resources that you can find on Get Fishing for Wellbeing into three types – there’s considerable overlap as we know that health workers such as Community Link Workers will want to explore the end-user offer too, and facilities will want to learn more about why they can be part of the growing social prescribing movement.

Mental Health Awareness Week 2023

Anxiety is one of the most common mental health problems – a quarter of adults said they felt so anxious that it stopped them from doing the things they want to do some or all of the time. Six in ten adults feel this way, at least some of the time. On a positive note, anxiety can be made easier to manage. Focusing on anxiety for this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week will increase people’s awareness and understanding of anxiety by providing information on the things that can help prevent it from becoming a problem.


Whatever you’re going through, a Samaritan will face it with you. They are there 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
