Why we do it

MAN&BOY recognises that ALL children, regardless of age or gender can benefit hugely from the positive, on-going involvement of a significant adult male in their lives and research has shown that this involvement has proven benefits. Improvements in educational attainment, increased self-esteem, better health outcomes as well as improved behaviour are all identified as potential positive outcomes.

 

MAN&BOY currently concentrates on supporting boys aged between 10 and 12 ( school years 5,6,7 & 8 ) as we believe that this transition from junior to senior school is particularly important in a boy’s life and that a supportive, encouraging male role model can make a huge difference to their self-esteem.
