Fishability QLD has witnessed, first-hand, individuals sustaining tenancies, by feeling connected to community and being involved with a group who cares for them. Our motto is “Fish and forget”; however, our day-to-day service is “doing with, not for”. Fishability QLD also advocate for individuals through regular support and contact and ensures that no man or woman is left feeling like no-one is there for them or that their lives have no meaning. Healthy exercise, and getting out there, is not a common occurrence in the lives of most people experiencing vulnerability. Fishability QLD is dedicated to breaking down the barriers of social isolation and bettering people’s lives through community support and outdoor fun.  "Fish and Forget"
