What is Engage?

Engage was developed in response to the growing demand from service providers for support to improve their engagement and work with men.  It was created via a partnership between the Institute of Technology Carlow, the Men’s Development Network, Waterford Institute of Technology and the Health Service Executive's Health Promotion Department.

The training content is based upon the partners' experience, evidence from academic and evaluation literature, and an extensive 24 month pilot phase.  The Men's Health Forum in Ireland (MHFI) supported the production of resources for this training.
