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.
