The world is transforming at an alarming rate, sometimes it is impossible to keep it. According to the Office for National Statistics Men account for 8 out of 10 people cautioned by the police, and nearly 9 out of 10 people found guilty for indictable offences are men. Men are responsible for 97% of burglary and 92% of violence against the person. It is clear that we are living in a society where something awful is happening to men. There seems to be a gap between manhood and adolescence and our mission at Manhood Academy Global is to address that gap by helping our sons make that transition from childhood to manhood. We could be here all day dissecting the issues within our community, issues that seem to be spearheaded by men. Whatever your social standpoint, we cannot stick our head in the sand pretending that there is no problem. There is a massive issue and this issue is having a major effect on society. Manhood Academy Global (M.A.G) is a registered Charity with a global reach that is committed to our children’s life-changing transformation opportunities. Our unique ‘rites of passage’ is a fusion of; Transformative Master classes, 121 Intensive Life Coaching and Mentoring, A life-changing, ‘Coming of Age’ rites of passage Cultural Exchange Abroad

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.
