A new website is now available for the 1.2 million Australian men in unpaid, informal caring roles – www.mencaretoo.org
The caring experience and perspective is often different for men, we generally find it difficult to ask for help and it is hard finding somewhere to fit in as a man with caring responsibilities. The Men Care Too website is for Sons, Brothers, Fathers, Uncles, Husbands, Neighbours and Mates all helping someone they care about who may have a disability, mental illness, chronic condition, terminal illness, alcohol or other drug issue or who are aged. Men Care Too is also a reminder for service providers, community groups, organisations and employers to include men in conversations about informal, unpaid caring roles.
Men Care Too has three focus areas – Awareness, Wellbeing and Engagement which you can read more about here.
Through sharing of relevant information, links and videos along with regular blog posts, Men Care Too will increase awareness and recognition of men in unpaid, informal caring roles.
Men Care Too Monday features news and updates about men in the caring role, delivered free every week. Subscribe here.
