National groupwork coordination
GMFAs national groupwork programme delivers information based workshops to men in collaboration with CHAPS partners across England. Staff and volunteers at GMFA develop and pilot the interventions and work alongside staff and volunteers in other agencies to deliver groups. GMFA offer trained facilitators to work alongside, to train or mentor local trainers and provide additional training for specific workshops. Standards ensure that trainers meet core competencies and a central evaluation system assists in maintaining those standards and informing the development of future workshops. The CHAPS funded programme reduces costs by centralising workshop development and by coordinating recruitment of men to groups.
