Welcome to MENtors for Men

Coffs Harbour Jetty
“The MENtors project is about reducing social isolation by supporting men into health and wellbeing activities so that they  gain fulfilment and purpose in their lives and have the opportunity to reach their full potential.”

The programme is based on the Coffs Coast of NSW and is about men supporting men. Its aim is to connect with  men in the community by establishing  peer support, MENtoring networks and services to improve mens physical, mental, emotional and social wellbeing and provide them with a sense of belonging and purpose. Often men, after experiencing a major turning point like losing a job, relationship breakdown or retirement, would withdraw and become socially isolated and/or depressed.  It will be a volunteering opportunity for men from varied backgrounds to share their skills, knowledge and experience, building a rich culture of men supporting men.
