The 3 main aims of Reels on Wheels is to help the disabled and those needing assistance to return to fishing. They collect names and contact numbers of people needing help and assistance, and as importantly, the names and contact details of people willing to give that assistance. These will be cross referenced and introduced through the "Buddy" system register.
The second aim is to offer advice and guidance in general to fisheries and venues in regards to access and suitability for the disabled angler. Where appropriate they offer to refer them to an appropriate advisory agency in their area.
Last but by no means least is their third aim to (where ever possible) promote angling as a healthy, beneficial pastime for everyone, regardless of experience or ability. This will be done by supporting less privileged groups enabling them to participate in organised events. They do this by offering to conduct "Angling for all" seminars to schools and youth clubs. By offering to conduct "Angling for all - It can be done" seminars and demonstrations to disabled clubs and associations.
They would like to have their own purpose built lake/lakes which would see all swims with platforms suitable for wheelchairs, with small cafe/tackle shop/toilets. Family workshop for the carers, wives and kids, a junior club to encourage the younger generation to take up the sport and combine that with them assisting less able/disabled anglers. The whole complex would be made into a Trust so Reels on Wheels would continue into future.

Did you know that if every Adult angler in England and Wales who held a Licence made a one off donation of £1 to Reels on Wheels they could open a purpose built fishery for all to use with areas for kids, family workshops, cafe, tackle supplies and fully disabled pegs and toilets and then the whole complex would be turned into a Trust.
Please help to make a difference, your donation will be put to good use no matter how big or small.
You love your fishing - so do the less able amongst us! Thank You.
