A Short Foreword

Brighton & Hove’s city leaders have promised to improve the quality of life of everyone who lives here by tackling inequality and disadvantage and giving everyone the opportunity to help make our city a success.

The Men’s Network in Brighton & Hove shares this commitment to creating a city that works for everyone – including men and boys.

We can believe we can only do this if we involve and support men in developing local groups and communities that actively create opportunities for every man and boy in our city to give help and get help whenever they need it.

When local communities include men and boys it makes it easier for everyone to work together and help men and boys live longer, happier, healthier lives; help boys to do better at school and support every dad to make a difference in his children’s lives.

By taking this male-friendly inclusive approach we believe we can make Brighton & Hove a healthier, happier, safer place for everyone who lives in, works in and visits our city – including men and boys.

Glen Poole, Chair, The Men’s Network
