Common Ground Fundamentals
There are profound benefits when men have the space and time to discuss the things that matter with other men. Common Ground groups provide a safe non-confronting atmosphere that supports your personal growth and raises awareness. It’s about building something new on the inside, from an authentic masculine perspective.
Individuals and community organisations often ask us about men’s groups and it’s clear there is a genuine shortage of facilities and opportunities for men. Common Ground offers one of the few opportunities for men to gain new perspectives on issues, and on life with other caring and informed men.
Common Ground groups provide a safe, non-confronting atmosphere that supports personal growth and raises awareness.
