Our groups are free to access, confidential, with no referral needed and no diagnosis required.
70,000 UK men die prematurely every year at one-and-a-half times the rate of women from a range of problems, most of which are entirely preventable. One in 5 men die before 65! The case for better provision of resources devoted to improving the health and well-being of men therefore seems indisputable. For instance, there is no organised NHS screening programme for prostate cancer although prostate cancer is the commonest major male cancer in the UK, we aim to stop this by raising awareness and providing screening services for: Cardiovascular disease and diabetes in the NHS Health Check; Aortic aneurysm; Skin cancer; Prostate cancer

Colour blindness (colour vision deficiency, or CVD) affects approximately 1 in 12 men (8%) and 1 in 200 women in the world. In Britain this means that there are approximately 3 million colour blind people (about 4.5% of the entire population), most of whom are male. The Colour Blind Awareness organisation has been founded to raise awareness of colour blindness (colour vision deficiency) and aims to be the first point of reference in the UK for people seeking information on colour blindness. The organisation provides support for colour blind people, especially colour blind children and their families and teachers.

Dadbloguk is one of the few UK-based dad blogs to have followed a family from the birth of a child, through the early years and pre-school and into the school years. It has also followed the journey of writer John Adams, from leaving full-time employment and becoming the main carer for his kids whilst his wife works full-time, detailing the challenges and highlighting and challenging the casual sexism he has faced along the way from a society that still doesn’t quite know how to handle a man who has volunteered to live this way.

Dementia UK provides specialist dementia support for families through our Admiral Nurse service. When things get challenging or difficult for people with dementia and their families, Admiral Nurses work alongside them. They give the compassionate one-to-one support, guidance and practical solutions people need, and that can be hard to find elsewhere. Admiral Nurses are continually trained, developed and supported by Dementia UK. Families that have their support have someone truly expert and caring by their side. They are a lifeline helping families to live more positively with dementia in the present, and to face the challenges of tomorrow with more confidence and less fear. We believe that everyone who needs the support of a specialist dementia nurse should get one, and we’re working hard to increase the number of Admiral Nurses across the UK.
