The organisation Empathy attempted to host its first men’s support group on the evening of November 13 to provide a male-only space where they can share their personal challenges.
Caroline Sephton, the founder, and director of the company was “very disappointed” that nobody turned up to the session last night and hopes to see some interest as the weeks go on.
The community interest company, located on Library Street, Wigan, had noticed a lack of male-only spaces for those who felt they needed someone to talk to. And with nearly half their clients being male they decided it was time to start a male-only evening session.
“It’s really important to show that we are interested in talking to Men” Caroline said.
Empathy welcomes everyone to go in and have a brew and a chat and most importantly not to be embarrassed.
