Objectives

OUR PURPOSE: We believe when positive role models are actively present; children, families, and communities thrive. We work alongside families by encouraging men to be a mentor to the boys in their life. We offer a diverse programme of opportunities for men and boys to have fun, take part in adventurous activities together, and enhance their own and wider family relationships.

Man & Boy work to enhance family relationships, between boys who may be struggling with life and a significant male in their lives. This could be the biological father, but could be a stepfather, grandfather, uncle or even an older sibling. Our programming uses diverse activities where the man can be a role model to the boy, based on fun, encouragement, trust and open communication. We currently generally focus on boys between the ages of 8 and 12 years of age, prior to them entering the challenges of adolescence and secondary school.

We provided a range of activities, such as wilderness camps, climbing courses and activity days that enable the building of a stronger relationship between the Man and Boy.
