In Bassetlaw, Worksop and the wider north Nottinghamshire area, Men on the Edge brings men together in community to support those dealing with isolation, bereavement and abuse – social factors that can commonly affect men in middle age and later life. Through woodwork, DIY, gardening, fishing and other community-led initiatives, Steve works with a therapeutic approach to help people feel seen, heard and valued.
Men account for 75% of all suicides in the UK. Steve applied for The Multiplier programme because he wanted to learn how to scale his project so men across the country have a place to go in good times and during a crisis.

The Cares Family recognises the challenges in ensuring men feel welcome and included in community projects – that’s why projects like Men’s Cooking at North London Cares exist. Steve was chosen for The Multiplier because of his dynamic approach to creating better connections and support for men.
