Working With Men
Working With Men
Working With Men is an award winning charity supporting positive male activity, engagement and involvement, Working With Men works primarily with boys, young men and fathers, particularly from disadvantaged communities, to enable them to access services and improve their life chances. We identify unmet need, demonstrate how the need can be met, and influence and inspire mainstream services to address the need. We develop services with boys and young men in a variety of settings, including schools, youth services, children's centres, outreach, street/ estate based work. The activities include conflict resolution and transition work in schools, Pupil Referral Units , Youth Offending Teams, through one to one work and group programmes, fathers development work (especially with young fathers), one to one work with NEET young men (Not in Education Employment or Training), youth activities through estate based youth projects, Identity Projects focusing on race issues. We run specific projects aimed at preventing racist violence by young people as well as an Expectant Fathers Programme, externally evaluated as excellent by the National Academy for Parenting Practitioners and the Boys Development Programme which works primarily with single mothers of boys. We deliver training and produce resources to support practitioners and agencies who work with boys, young men and fathers.
Our Vision - Our vision is that boys and men who are marginalised and excluded should receive good quality services that meet their sometimes conflicting and changing needs, so that they can play a full and constructive role in their communities and society.
Our Mission - To identify unmet need among marginalised and excluded boys and men, demonstrate how that need can be met, and influence and inspire mainstream services to start to address and meet the need. In support of this mission we develop, deliver and disseminate services and resources for other agencies.
Working With Men aims to:
- To enable individuals and organisations to understand masculinities and how their understanding affects them.
- To achieve a wider social impact from all our work
- To be at the cutting edge of work with boys and men, and to continually push the boundaries of this work.
