ManMade Family

An Evaluation of the ManMade Family Programme May 2016


The ManMade Family programme supported men to be able to talk more openly about their emotions, to build their confidence and self-esteem, to know where to go for help and to support others in the community.

This was achieved through an eight-week workshop programme which included peer discussion, information sharing and self-reflection on a range of health and wellbeing topics, underpinned by person centred facilitation approaches.

This report presents the independent findings from the ManMade Family Programme, delivered in Sandwell from February – March 2016.

ManMade is an eight week programme of workshop sessions designed to support and empower unemployed men to take care of their own mental health and wellbeing.

It was developed by Forward for Life and Common Unity in response to high levels of poor male mental health and suicide, associated with gender identity.

Five men took part in this programme, which was more explicitly focused on supporting men with caring responsibilities.
