In 2011, a group of men decided to have dinner with the intention of having a place to connect with other men, and talk about the highs and lows of their lives.
They’ve been meeting once a month ever since to talk, laugh and share about what’s going on for them, and have forged meaningful relationships based on trust and acceptance of each other.
Belonging to a Men’s Table contributes to mental, emotional and social wellbeing whilst being a powerful support to individual members travelling their life journeys.
Each Table is distinct and has its own personality , guided by the lessons learned through the experience of existing Men’s Tables, and supported by the Kitchen (central office) of The Men’s Table, a registered not for profit organisation.
The Men’s Table community is the men from all Tables.
We hold various community events, online and in-person, where men from across Tables come together to share, learn and connect.
Whilst men’s primary experience is of their own Table, being part of our growing community helps men be part of the bigger picture and the positive changes taking place toward Healthy Men, Healthy Masculinities, Healthy Communities.
Women are big supporters of The Men’s Table. Many men are sitting at Tables because of a woman in their life.
