WWM is a specialist charity supporting positive male activity, engagement and involvement. They have expertise in the difficulties and solutions of working with boys and men who are socially or economically disadvantaged, marginalised or isolated. Their mission is to significantly reduce the number of boys and men, particularly from socially excluded or disadvantaged backgrounds, who are unable to achieve their full potential to become productive and active members of society.
WMM's interventions focus on the transitional times in life such as starting school, getting a job or becoming a parent, these times are when men are most likely to encounter challenges and therefore most likely to engage or seek help. They include:
- Solution-based approaches to tackling conflict and knife related incidents in schools and in the community
- Raising the attainment levels of boys in school
- Support for single mothers of boys, fatherhood and fathers into school programmes
- Tackling racial violence and issues of identity among young people
More recently they have also begun working with women’s groups on issues related to safer relationships, conflict and mediation.
