Men's Group

Down To Earth User GroupThe Men's group gives male users the opportunity to discuss a number of topics from a male perspective, (personal, health and social) chosen by the men themselves.

The aim is for men to take a more active part in activities held at the Centre by putting their views and opinions forward. The group also hopes to improve social awareness, enable greater interaction amongst men in the community and increase confidence.
