International Men’s Day in the UK is on 19 November every year – it is celebrated around the world in at least 60 countries.

Every year, International Men’s Day in the UK is marked by more and more women, men and organisations across the country. Last year, over the month of November there were over 60 events and celebrations from a Parliamentary debate to community events, business events, student events, political events, conferences, film launches and exhibitions – the most anywhere in the world. We are confident that 2017 will be even bigger.

International Men’s Day in the UK provides a fantastic opportunity for you to:

  • Highlight some serious issues affecting men and boys and their wellbeing
  • Make a difference to men and boys’ lives
  • Celebrate Britain’s men and boys in all their diversity
  • Have some serious fun

Organisations and people do not have to stick to holding an event or celebration on 19 November if they want to mark the day, especially as it is Sunday this year!

In the UK, as well as supporting the global theme, the focus remains on how we can make a difference to men and boys, and, how we can give men and boys better life chances by addressing some of the issues that affect Men and Boys such as:

  • The high male suicide rate
  • The challenges faced by boys and men at all stages of education including attainment
  • Men’s health, shorter life expectancy and workplace deaths
  • The challenges faced by the most marginalised men and boys in society (for instance, homeless men, boys in care and the high rate of male deaths in custody)
  • Male victims of violence, including sexual violence
  • The challenges faced by men as parents, particularly new fathers and separated fathers
  • Male victims and survivors of sexual abuse, rape, sexual exploitation, domestic abuse, forced marriage, honour-based crime, stalking and slavery
  • The negative portrayal of men, boys and fathers
