Mandem Meetup


Mandem Meetup is a mental health charity that helps men who have experienced trauma.

Founded in 2019 by Jamie Dennis after he learnt the life-changing benefits talking could bring, Mandem has had over 1,000 attendees in the past year and provides near-daily activities. 87% of men report improved mood after attending their talking circles where trained volunteers are on hand for psychological support. Mandem Meetup also does homeless outreach.

The Fore’s support will enable the founder to give up his paid job and concentrate on Mandem, to scale its work and take advantage of more opportunities. Mandem already has powerful partnerships with We Are Survivors, NHS, and Sport England, so the potential is significant.
