Future Men (formerly known as Working with Men) is a multi-award-winning specialist charity that supports positive male involvement, engagement and activity whilst also addressing the stereotypes around masculinity and engaging in the wider conversation of what it means to be a man. We do this by providing support at key transition points in their lives.
Since our inception in 1988, experience has shown us that if boys at risk of becoming disengaged from school, community and mainstream services end up being socially excluded they are likely to be isolated and end up in gang and criminal activity leading to a further trajectory of negative pathways in their lives.
Through our evidence-based and practice-led services, we work with boys and men from childhood to 25 to help them become healthy future men. From structured school programmes and youth hubs to individual one-to-one sessions and outreach work, we provide the vital support and advocacy that changes boys and young men’s lives for the better.
Our Boys Development Programme in schools helps to reduce exclusion and improve mental health and educational attainment. We support pupils at risk of exclusion through the crucial transition from primary to secondary school, helping them become more resilient and make better choices and increasing their engagement with school. Our youth centres in London provide positive activities for young people who have been excluded and prevent gang involvement and serious youth violence.
Our Ventoring outreach service assertively looks for and engages with young men who are not in education, employment or otherwise positively engaged and provides support to enable them to address the issues that are holding them back. We also offer training for young fathers to-be through our Future Dads course, helping them become the parents we know they want to become and that their partners and families need them to be.
