Angling offers the opportunity to escape the demands of a busy work and home life by surrounding yourself in nature and wildlife away from a world of technology. It provides an opportunity for our minds to rest and reset and can be a meditative pastime that often happens in places where the wonders of nature are very evident. Here's how to incorporate angling in mental health and wellbeing support activity.

How to Apply:
Download and complete the forms below
Please note that you do not need to tick all the criteria to become an approved partner – we will provide support for you to obtain any documents that you don’t currently have.
What to do with these forms:
Please go through the Safer Operator sheet and use it as a checklist to highlight where your organisation currently sits. If your organisation is missing any of the criteria, then please don’t worry we will either directly supply these to you or we have provided the necessary documents on this website.
When you’ve completed the Safer Operator sheet, simply email it along with a copy of your insurance certificate and safeguarding policy to: [email protected] for sign-off by our Lead Safeguarding Manager Richard Hadley. At this early stage you do not have to supply all the evidence listed in the check list. We will assess your application, sign off and then list your organisation on our Safer Operator Section of the website and send you the official branding logo.
We can’t do this without you! Therefore, we are here to help you every step of the way – please contact us for further support: [email protected]
