Fir Tree Fishery CIC is a Community Interest Company that delivers alternative education, enrichment and rehabilitation opportunities through community inspired projects focused around angling participation, practical work skills and outdoor social action projects.
We support a diverse range of individuals and groups from young people aged 14 - 25 with special education needs and disabilities (SEND) through to older members of the local community who have physical disabilities or are socially isolated.
Our services include alternative education programmes such as Traineeships, Apprenticeships, BTEC programmes for local schools and personalised education, health and care plans designed around the needs of young people with special education needs and disabilities. Underlying all our education provisions are a range of community inspired and social engagement projects for adults with physical disabilities and/or those who are at risk of social isolation focused around angling and outdoor enrichment. Many of these events are supported by our young people who develop new skills and experiences by supporting and engaging with our older beneficiaries in the role of coaches, care support or simply being 'buddies' as we like to call them.
