TALK & LISTEN
Talk & Listen groups are peer to peer talking groups led by volunteers we call Captains.
WHAT IS A TALK & LISTEN GROUP?
A Talk & Listen group is a peer to peer talking group run by volunteers we call Captains. We train Captains to facilitate groups in communities across the UK.
These groups are held in person and online. In person meetings are held wherever men are – gyms, pubs, local cafe’s… in safe and quiet spaces so men can talk and listen using the Talk Club sharing model which starts with ‘How are you? Out of 10?’. This simple question helps men to put a number on how they feel, (1 being rock bottom and 10 being on top of the world) then trying to explain why.
Depending on the number of men attending, sessions last a maximum of two hours. Groups meet at different times, days and frequencies depending on the Captain and availability of space in the community.
