MenPower Participants graduate from a 4 week programme

MenPower is a programme operated by Offaly Local Development Company. The programme works alongside men on a group basis. The graduation ceremony was held in Millennium House in Tullamore. The ceremony was different than the previous ten graduation ceremonies due to the current pandemic however special in its own right. The men enjoyed a socially distanced meal and were awarded certificates of achievement.

The group training programme combines a unique mix of mental health, adult guidance and social networking methodologies that afford men the opportunity to explore the following: how to be and stay well, barriers to achieving their goals and desires and how to plan for their future.

The programme works alongside a small group of men. The programme adhers to COVID-19 protocols to ensure the safety of the men, their families and staff alike.

It is hoped that the next programme on offer will be 12 weeks in duration from 10-1pm, Wednesday and Thursdays in Offaly Local Development Company, Millennium House, Main Street, Tullamore, Co Offaly. The training is free and lunch is provided. A man’s benefits will not be affected while participating on the course.

Graduates of a 12 week programme have the opportunity to meet on a regular basis post MenPower. This group are known as Tearmann na bhFear. They meet up for a chat and engage in activities whereby they upskill, socialize while socially distanced and have fun in an environment conducive to promoting a positive sense of wellbeing.
