We are always confidential in all sessions on the bank

We follow all confidentiality guidelines set out by Social Care Wales

A Safeguarding approach will always be used

With purposeful participation, Angling can help a number of cognitive difficulties

Using fine motor skills and concentration for longer periods

Being supported next to a lake or any expanse of water, can relax and center the mind

Be outside and in the silence, surrounded by beauty

“Suicide is one of the most prolific killers of men between 16 - 35”
