THE VALUE OF MEN
FAMILIES NEED DADS, UNCLES, GRANDFATHERS AND FRIENDS
Men and Fathers can sometimes be sidelined from attention at school. Here’s how a very simple idea employed by a Chaplain went very well in Men’s Health Week.
“I decided to just put a few local phone numbers together that men might like to connect with: men’s shed, drop in community place, the local men’s health worker contact number, tool hire resources and a free craft activity for families. Then I approached Dads or carers who came for school pickup and drop off, with a free pen and the Resource Info. Never in my wildest thoughts would I have imagined the incredible response I received! Along with the great response, 3 men shared quite personally which I have been able to follow up on in my work as PCW.” says Joy McKenzie, SMG Pastoral Care Worker
Hey men, thanks for being there and thanks for what you’re doing, we need you!
This year Men’s Health Week is June 10-16.
