Man About Town

Man About Town reduces social isolation for men in South Leeds. The Leeds suicide audit published in 2016 found that men are almost five times more likely to end their own life than women which is higher than the national average of three to one.

The project encourages men who may be socially isolated and at risk of suicide to engage back in to the wider community through a series of creative, practical and fun sessions including both music and the digital arts, with activities such as gig buddies, vinyl picnics and music quizzes.

Man About Town Leeds
Back from our taster 'tech troubles' session and reminded how important it is to have things to do of an evening especially as the nights are drawing in. The tech talk was great and we covered things like Facebook, iplayer, ebay. Sometimes it's enough to do cool stuff and take our minds off the other every chance we get. Proud of the lads tonight and looking forward to the next session this Sunday where we'll be walking in Roundhay Park with the prospect of a bit of nature art in the mix. Should be interesting, come along to the cafe by the lake at 10:30am ... See MoreSee Less
