That's The Thing About Fishing is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to helping the most vulnerable members of the community through the group social interaction of fishing.

The issues we support but are not limited to are:

KIDS & FAMILIES

Through the outdoor experience, children and their families get away from screens and participate in real-world interactions which promote health and social development.

TROUBLED YOUTH

Young people often find trouble when they lack a positive outlet for their boredom and frustration. We help them develop direction, self-esteem, and introduce them to a new skill.

DISABILITIES

People with a disability commonly feel isolated from the community. The social interaction and group activity of fishing engages them in the community and helps to build support networks.

MENTAL ILLNESS

Many people with a mental illness are not helped by the isolation their condition brings. We believe that positive socialisation reduces the severity of many mental illnesses.

RISK OF SUICIDE

The risk of a person taking their own life is greatly reduced when they are surrounded by a positive, accepting group with a common interest. TTTAF aims to save lives among this risk group.

FAMILY VIOLENCE

Violence in the home intimidates and isolates victims. By providing a safe social network, victims are more likely to want to escape their situations if they feel supported and assisted. We aim to do this.
