What is Men in Care?

Men in Care (MiC) is a project of twelve national organisations from seven different European countries, which will help reduce barriers for men who want to become involved in caring activities. MiC aims to improve workplace conditions to promote men taking caring roles and will assess how policies and workplace cultures can change to enable men to become more active in caring for children, elderly, partners, co-workers and friends. Involving workers, trade unions, employers, and families, the project will enable men to take time to care for themselves and others. Find more information on the project here.
