Welcome to the Canterbury Men’s Centre. We support men in many ways. We suggest you give us a call for specific information but some information is below and on our other pages.
Men’s Sheds: We are supporting a range of groups to start a shed. Phone or write to us Donald Pettitt email@example.com , or see the main website for your local shed http://www.menzshed.org.nz/.
Free Initial Service: Meet with one of us and we’ll make a plan to make the most of your life and also make sure you know the options inside the the existing social and health (and other) systems. Some Free Counselling is available but where you can contribute we ask you to.
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 at Christchurch Community House. We are now based at the Men’s Support Hub, and making even more history!
