The Long Version:
We support men in Canterbury by
- Doing one to one support, helping a man set his goals and pointing him in the right direction. Contact us if you are in this situation.
- Running projects for men. Men’s Sheds and men’s health events are examples of this.
- Helping the “systems” to help men. Examples include our monthly e-news, subscribed to by 600+ local health/social professionals. We also take calls from workers wanting to find options for male clients.

The Canterbury Men’s Centre emerged from the August 2005 Men’s Issues Summit. Since then our manager, staff and board have been diligently working on creating the centre. We officially opened in April 2008.
We are based in Christchurch Community House which has served as an excellent development base.
We are now providing drop-in support for men dealing with personal issues and also phone in referrals, as well as working with other agencies to develop services for men.
We involve ourselves in men’s health initiatives and men’s health advocacy as the opportunities arise.
