Men’s Groups in Brighton & Hove

The Men’s Network in Brighton & Hove currently runs two men’s groups which are open to men of all ages and backgrounds. If you’d like to join one of our men’s groups or want support in setting up a men’s group in your community then contact us today  by emailing glen@themensnetwork.org.uk or call 07981 334222.

What is a Men’s Group?

A men’s group is a place where you can celebrate the successes and victories in your life with other men and explore what else is possible so you can live the most fulfilling life. A men’s group can provide support when you are going through a tough time in your life and are in need of genuine support and advice from others. Ultimately, a men’s group will challenge you to be authentically who you are without hesitation, reservation or apology so that you can be a powerful man living with freedom, courage and inspiration

How do Men’s Groups work?

Men’s Groups typically consist of 8 – 10 men who meet on a regular basis for usually a 2 hour session in a neutral (but quiet) space. The groups will each work out exactly how they will run but typically different members take turns to facilitate or manage the space each week.  Everyone has the opportunity to speak and share anything they wish to and equally everyone has the freedom and space to remain silent if that is most appropriate.

These groups are not ‘therapy’ groups and are not facilitated by a professional – they are peer led and aim to support the personal development of each member. The best way to find out more about men’s groups and decide if you would like to join one, or form your own, is to come along to and get experience of being in a men’s group.

Who can come?

Men’s groups are open to any men of all ages from 18+ (the broader the age range in a group the richer the experience).  All groups that form under the umbrella of The Men’s Network are open to all men regardless of age, race, sexual orientation, ability, views or beliefs and we are happy to explore creating groups for specific communities of men where there is demand.

The Men’s Network currently runs two general men’s groups that are open to all and one group that is just for dads – click here to read about our Dads Group.

What do I do if I want to join a men’s group?

To make sure that a men’s group is right for you we  recommend you contact us in the first instance and we can put you in contact with one of our men’s group co-ordinators. Call us today on 07981 334222 or email glen@themensnetwork.org.uk.
