I think angling intervention programs like GHOF work because young people are getting appropriate role models. Sometimes a lot of these kids haven’t got a father figure that may be appropriate. Parents often themselves have lots of complex issues and they try to deal with their own problems, they’re not always available for he kids. The young people coming along here to GHOF, they get one to one and I think that is key for them, that they’ve got somebody that’s appropriate, and they get attention.
We've found angling courses have improved student behaviour in school because they feel they have something to works towards. These students are not always successful in school, because education doesn’t necessarily provide for them and that’s why we’re always looking for different ways to engage them and say look there is a future out there for you. Angling intervention courses impact on school lessons because the more switched on the students are the more they are likely to learn.
