Make a difference and develop skills with our Men's Group

by Brushstrokes

Brushstrokes Men’s Group has been running since April 2022 and hosts weekly sessions to encourage male service users to spend valuable time together. We offer a range of activities to appeal to our service users, and these have included gardening projects, nature walks in the local area including on the canal, arts and craft sessions, and football sessions. Many of these activities are run in partnership with organisations such as the Canal & River Trust and community arts organisations. The men’s group is a weekly session, however, we are not restricted by a particular day of the week. There are many ways how a male volunteer can contribute to this group. This can include: being a friendly face during our sessions, running a particular session about a topic that you have a passion for, setting up the room for the session, promotion of the men’s group.
