Mankind Counselling offers therapeutic services to men who have experienced any form of sexual violation at any time in their lives. These are offered in the form of 1-to-1 counselling and facilitated groups. These address the fact that issues around sexual abuse can affect men at different stages in their lives.

The ManKind Initiative was the first charity in the UK to support male victims of domestic abuse (registered in 2001). For over 15 years we have been at the forefront of providing services and support for male victims and campaigning to ensure that male victims receive the support they need from other organisations. Our am is to ensure all male victims of domestic abuse (and their children) are supported to enable them to escape from the situation they are in. We are gender inclusive in our view so we want all female victims (and their children) to escape too. We provide a range of services directly to men such as a anonymous national helpline that any man, anywhere can call us. We also support others to provide services for men so we run a one day training course, a national conference and a directory of services. We also give male victims a public voice by campaigning for them, sitting on Government and other committees and giving presentations around the country. Our confidential helpline is available for all men across the UK suffering from domestic violence or domestic abuse by their current or former wife or partner (including same-sex partner).

Following their mother Marie’s death from breast cancer in 1998, the Keating family promised to provide the people of Ireland with vital information, advice and support on the signs and symptoms of cancer and help to prevent cancer or detect it at its earliest stages. The Marie Keating Foundation was established in her memory and with this central ambition in mind. The Foundation's mission is to make cancer less frightening by enlightening and our aim is to live in a world free from the fear of cancer. Today, the Marie Keating Foundation are one of the leading voices in Ireland for cancer prevention, awareness and support. We are committed to being there for people diagnosed with cancer, and their families at every step of this cancer journey, and our services reflect that. Through our information and support services, we reach thousands of people a year, giving education, information and advice focused on cancer prevention and early detection, as well as providing support services and financial assistance to those living with and beyond cancer. Our team of 17 and our Board works tirelessly to ensure that the mission and legacy that the Keating Family established 22 years ago is fulfilled, and everyone in Ireland has access to trusted information on cancer prevention and early detection and that those on a cancer journey have the support they need to come through it.

We're all about local guys, making pies in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. At the weekly clubs you can expect to get stuck in and make your own delicious pie - don’t worry, you’ll be given all the ingredients and shown what to do by one of the MPC team. It’s usually Colin who we like to call ‘Lead Pie Man’ - we think he likes that name too. We meet in small, friendly groups of about 3-10 guys. When you arrive, someone from the team will give you a warm welcome. You don’t need any cooking skills at all (but you’ll learn a few if you fancy it). We use small camping stoves and our famous pie-makers to make top quality pies using great ingredients. You don’t need to bring anything, it’s all supplied and free of charge. Really, it’s just about being with guys like you from your local area, having a laugh and making and eating pies! We think that being together, learning to eat well and improving your physical and mental health is a great way to spend an hour each week. And so do our members! Want in? You’re in. Welcome to the Pie Club.
