We'll hear how some clubs have obtained funding and worked in partnership to develop their facilities and offerings for anglers. The Angling Trust will also describe its current participation programmes.

The Conference will conclude with an open forum, where the key messages and issues will be discussed and ideas collected to inform Angling Trust's future work.
