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.

We want to

  • Raise self-esteem in boys
  • Support and encourage men as role models
  • Empower boys to reach their full potential in school, work, and family, and to contribute positively in their local communities.

 

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
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves on the winter man & boy camp. It made us realise how life is so busy and that we do not spend enough quality time together enjoying one another’s company as father and son. It has also made us aware we should make more effort at home to take time out to discuss things together. I would strongly recommend the camp to anyone lucky enough to have the opportunity to take part in future man & boy activity weekends away. I hope these comments will help keep man & boy such a successful and fun organisation
