Man Matters is a men’s project aimed at providing training and learning opportunities for men across Northern Ireland. It is a project led by the Workers’ Educational Association in partnership with Home-Start NI, the Men’s Health Forum in Ireland and Parenting NI.

The project focuses on the themes of health, education, parenting/family and community work/volunteering. The aim is to encourage men to engage in learning in these areas. The project works, primarily with men, to increase their knowledge and capabilities but it also seeks to influence how services are provided and policies are made.

If you have a group of men who might be interested, or you simply want to receive more information, please contact Dawn or Gary on 028 9032 9718.

Statement on behalf of the Workers' Educational Association

It is with the utmost regret that the management committee and the senior management team of WEA-NI have found themselves in the position, due to circumstances completely outside their control, that we have been forced to wind the organisation up.

With immediate effect all activities and services provided by the organisation will cease. The management committee and senior management team would like to pay tribute to the support we have had from our employees, tutors, learners, funders and partners.

The management committee have appointed PKF-FPM 1-3 Arthur Street, Belfast to assist with the winding up of the organisation. 
Please contact Judith Shields @ PKF-FPM Belfast Office on 02890243131 if you have any queries.

A meeting of the membership of the WEA will take place on 30th June @ 10.00am at the offices of the WEA, 3 Fitzwilliam Street, Belfast, BT96AW and a creditors meeting will follow at 11.00am also in the WEA. 

On behalf of the management committee of the WEA.
