Inclusion Through Angling is a project operating in and around Cardiff. Although Wales is outside of our research remit, we felt it was important to visit the project as it was one of the few to be integrated into the education delivery system.

Little Britain Lake

The Borough of Hillingdon formed a case study of how local authorities can promote access to the benefits of angling, particularly for young people and their families.

Little Britain Lake, once an area associated with antisocial behaviour, was regenerated as part of the councils review of fishing venues suitable for young people. Paths were cleared and fishing platforms developed to provide a free family fishing venue. Since then two free Family Fishing Fun Days have been hosted at the lake, attracting over 1600 participants.
