Working in partnerships
We are fortunate to be working with some fantastic partners around the UK. Over the years we have built up a strong relationship with a number of key partners and we are always looking for more.
We work as a national organisation but always ensure that our project coordinators are linked into a steering group made up of local representatives from local organisations. They help to shape the way that their local scheme runs and delivers to local needs.
One of the most important relationships we have is with the young people themselves, listening to their feedback, considering their views and identifying in some their ability to teach others.
We know that there is a greater impact on our work when we have strong local partnerships. If you are interested in becoming a partner or would like to know more please contact us by clicking here

Fishing in Schools GHOF Humberside
David Lister School in Hull was the first to take up the GHOF Humberside Angling in Schools Programme. The 10 week block of sessions encompasses the GHOF module system as well as parts of the NFA’s OCN in Angling and the Environment and is a pre-requisite for the OCN course, giving all participants half a point to the ASDAN qualification.
With four classroom sessions the David Lister clan were keen to get on the bank even in the horrendous weather that we are currently experiencing.
The group made their way to the half frozen Brough Complex in Hull to find the fishing extremely hard. However Nicholas Appleby one of the groups mega keen anglers’ managed to catch a couple of fine jack pike and keep morale high in arguably some of this winters coldest weather. Luckily we had Angling writer and retired teacher Brian Skoyles on hand to give a fine demonstration on handling Pike.
Miss Lewis had the following to say after the session:
Roman, I just wanted to say thank you so much for yesterday. The kids really enjoyed it and i am so pleased that some of them caught some decent fish! Thanks again for all of your hard work.
The group still has the last half of the course to complete and can’t wait for the next session. Pickering High School has also followed suit and booked a 10 week slot, and with the weather improving who knows what we may catch!
