Men’s Circles

What is a men’s circle

During the current restrictions many groups are meeting via Zoom or other online tools  

Also sometimes known as a men’s group, men’s circles provide an opportunity for men to discuss the many things that they may find little chance to discuss with their families, work mates or at the pub. A men’s circle aims to create an environment of trust and support in which men can share their stories, learn to identify and enunciate their feelings, take ownership of them and grow as men within our community and families. Meetings can be anything from very intense, to very social and many men find them an important contribution to their lives. Some groups are always open to newcomers, whereas others have open sessions, where new men may attend and potentially join. Regardless, they aim to be inviting and supportive for new and experienced men alike.

The groups that are included here are independently organised and conducted and any requests for more information must be directed to the particular group identified in the listing.
