Application Information

How do I apply/refer? – Man & Boy’s programme of camps and 6-week relationship building courses run throughout the year and therefore referrals for places can be made at anytime by POST using the information leaflets or on-line by completing the on-line application on the website .


Simply provide the family with an information leaflet and ask them to complete one-side of the ‘tear-off’ application page and return to you. The referrer then completes the reverse of the application page and sends it to MAN&BOY, Suite 1, 444 Ewell Road, Surbiton, Surrey KT6 7EL OR completes the ON-LINE application. (Leaflets are distributed local schools and services, however, if you would like additional leaflets contact or download and print the leaflet here:




Advanced notification about when and where the latest camps and courses are taking place is sent out to an email distribution list. If you would like to be added to this list please complete the ‘CONTACT US’ page.


Who can apply? – Anyone can apply by completing the an application, however, in most cases someone working with a family completes the application after discussion with them.


What is the criteria? – Boys who:

  • Are in school years 5, 6 , 7 & 8 (although we will consider boys outside of this age range where appropriate)
  • Are struggling with life (E.G. boys struggling with behaviour, difficulty in making friendships, becoming withdrawn)
  • Would benefit from time spent with a significant adult male in their lives (dad, step-dad, granddad, uncle, older brother, family friend, etc) identified by the parent/guardian
  • NB. We are particularly keen to receive applications for families who may be disengaged with school or disadvantaged in some way


What does it cost?

Each family place costs approximately £500 and MAN&BOY seek to cover as much of these costs as possible from grants, charitable donations and contributions from schools and other agencies.


All places are heavily subsidised and therefore if you would like to refer a family we would ask the referral agency to consider making a contribution of £100 towards the costs. In some cases we are also able to provide fully funded places.


We therefore do not expect the family to pay, however, in order to encourage attendance, a refundable deposit of £20 is requested from them on enrolment. This is returned upon completion of the course/camp.

We value

  • Family and the role of the father
  • Acting honestly and with integrity
  • Taking personal responsibility
  • Believing in people
  • Enabling others to achieve their full potential
The child thoroughly enjoyed this opportunity to spend time, one to one with his step-dad. He is also much calmer and more responsible at school
