NEWS ALERT: Fishability announced as a Finalist in the National Disability Awards

Minister for Social Services, the Hon Christian Porter MP recently announced the selection of 27 finalists for the 2015 National Disability Awards.

“The National Disability Awards have been set up to recognise the valuable contribution organisations and people make to improving the lives of people with disability in Australia,” Mr Porter said.

“The number of finalists reflects the breadth of talent through the more than 200 nominations received. There have been some fantastic achievements and it has made the job of the independent judging panel difficult.”

Fishability was announced as one of the finalists in the category of Excellence in Accessibility – Technology for the development of our ‘Fishability Map’, our interactive map highlighting 143 locations around Western Australia which are suitable for people with disabilities to go fishing from.

The 2015 National Disability Award winners were announced at a ceremony on Wednesday, 25 November at Parliament House in Canberra.  Fishability Vice-Chair, Mike Donnelly represented the Association at the event.

Fishability

Fishability assists people requiring support to experience the joy of fishing by using purpose-built motorised rods, reels and fishing rod holders and providing:

  • Organised shore and jetty based fishing activities;
  • Our wheelchair accessible vessels – “Nev Thomas” and “Mistral” – for guided river, ocean and estuary fishing trips;
  • Advice on universally accessible fishing locations and facilities; and
  • Acts in an advocacy role in promoting inclusive participation in recreational fishing.

The type of fishing gear and level of assistance we provide is dependent on the individual abilities and expectation of the participant.
