Catching a brighter future
Since 2003, Fishability has been helping people with a disability around WA experience the joy of recreational fishing.
It’s breaking down the isolation that people with disabilities may have. It’s just fantastic.
Fishability Executive Officer
The organisation’s 180 volunteers take more than 2,000 people on fishing trips each year, an activity that helps build friendships and encourage participation for people living with a disability.
Fishability Executive Officer Mike McMullan said he loves to see the smiles on people’s faces when they catch their first fish.
“It’s breaking down the isolation that people with disabilities may have. It’s just fantastic,” he said.
By playing Lotterywest games, you’ve supported Fishability with a $40,000 grant to help benefit people with disability in the metro and regional areas of WA.
“The support from Lotterywest is great. It helps our Fishability volunteers improve the quality of life of people with disabilities from Geraldton through to Albany,” Mike said.
In the 2020-21 financial year, $313.4 million went back to the WA community through Lotterywest’s grants program. So, thanks for making this already great state, greater.
