Fishing Volunteer - Albany

Logo for Fishability

Fishing is one of the most popular recreational activities in Australia. Until recently this activity has been difficult, if not impossible for many people with disabilities.

As a volunteer in this position you will help people with disabilities experience the fun of fishing, by: • Giving practical assistance to participants - setting up fishing gear, baiting and casting a line, and catch care; • Showing an awareness of current rules and regulations regarding recreational fishing; • Developing relationships with participants to enhance their self-esteem, life skills, awareness of the environment and experience a quality outdoor activity;

Volunteers are not expected to assist with personal care of participants as professional carers accompany all participants.

Uniforms, training and social events are provided to all volunteers.
