Our Story

Founded in 1988 as Working With Men, Future Men is a multi-award-winning specialist charity that supports boys and men along the path to becoming dynamic future men, whilst addressing the stereotypes around masculinity and engaging in the wider conversation of what it means to be a man.

Why we’re here

How, and what boys and men learn about being a man affects how they manage their lives and relationships. It also affects how they feel about themselves. Many boys and men still learn that being dominant and aggressive are necessary parts of being a man and find it hard to resist overwhelming peer pressure to take part in risk taking behaviour. These pressures during adolescence and other transitional times in life, can have harmful consequences for both men themselves and wider society.

What we do

We support boys and men from childhood to 25+ to help them become dynamic and healthy future men. Through our practice-led services, we encourage boys and men to explore, celebrate and build on the seven characteristics that we believe contribute to positive masculinity. These are:

We also advocate for boys and men through influencing policy and practice, whilst addressing the stereotypes around masculinity and engaging in the wider conversation of what it means to be a man. Our work addresses some of the biggest societal issues facing this group, such as low education attainment, poor mental health and youth violence.
