Phoenix Heroes CIC build communities, we run our own Veteran Carp Angling Club (VCAC) and hold fishing events around the UK on a monthly basis, we use the fisheries as our meet-up hubs and our beneficiaries come from all parts of the UK. We have a team of Regional Coordinators that cover most counties and they bring our local beneficiaries together within their own areas and arrange regular fishing days/nights. All of our beneficiaries are given the option to travel to join us to fish some of the best fisheries in the UK and we are aligned with some very good fisheries in France too.
Under our Tackle 4 Heroes project of which has now gone national, we are able to kit out our veterans with free fishing equipment so they can come and join us on our fishing events, we look after the families too. We are one of the fastest growing active veteran organisations in the UK under our VCAC initiative and receiving some fantastic support from within the fishing industry. Within our community, our beneficiaries can access the other services that we provide outside of fishing/community building from employment networking and mental health support.
