It’s been far too long…

Since our last blog post in August 2019, so much has happened. In December 2019 we launched our first male support group, based at Haden Cross community fire station in the West Midlands, shortly followed in January 2020 was our 2nd support group at Northfield fire station in Birmingham. Both groups were well attended until the recent Covid-19 outbreak, meaning we had to temporarily close our meetings, but we have since been running weekly online meetings to offer help, support and advice for men struggling. Also in January 2020 we received confirmation that our application to become a registered charity had been accepted, meaning we are here to stay now as a registered UK charity, No: 1187404.

During lockdown we have been working hard behind the scenes to keep the wheels in motion, offering help and advice around the clock. For any advice or to join our online weekly male support groups, email us at:

Proudly supported by Abingdon Summer Firework Festival

This morning we found out that we have been selected by Abingdon Summer Firework Festival as their chosen cause for 2019. This will help us to continue training all of our volunteers in mental health awareness and support, continue to develop online support and will also give us the funding to start organising drop in sessions and meet and greet sessions around the UK. Without the support of events like this and yourselves, we would be nothing but another page on Facebook. Please visit this amazing event and show them the support they have shown us, we can all make a difference together.

Tickets for the event are available here:
