Fishability is currently establishing a fishing program in Bunbury, which will enable adults and children with special needs the opportunity to participate in recreational fishing. As a volunteer in this position you will help people with disabilities experience the fun of fishing by:
- Giving practical assistance - 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 support workers accompany all participants.
