We want to help men find a sense of purpose, teaching them new skills and facilitating them to use their talents and have a life they enjoy.

Mission:Possible – for men too
The Blossom Charity has, for several years, run successful development programmes for women and teens to help individuals improve their confidence and sense of wellbeing to live their best lives. What we do works and our data proves it. We have evidence that the changes people make are sustainable.
We keep being asked why don’t we do it for men too? Indeed, why not?
In a world where men tend not to talk about their emotions and suicide is the most common form of death in men aged 20 – 49, it is imperative that men are encouraged to talk about how they feel and to find or retain a sense of purpose to live a fulfilled life.
We are crowdfunding to pilot a development programme specifically tailored to men. It will include workshops, 1:1 coaching sessions, a style day and an exciting adventure challenge. Men will learn about themselves and what they want in a safe, inclusive and supportive environment.There will also be the chance to take part in a 1:1 session of MBTI, which is a well recognized, academically based self-help profiling tool which helps people gain insights about how they work and learn. It will give individuals a framework for relationship-building, developing positivity, and achieving excellence in all areas of their lives.
This will be the only programme of its kind for men in Norfolk and Suffolk. We have a proven track record of helping women and our highly experienced male and female team can help men too! We have taken experience from the business, public and private, academic and medical worlds to help design programmes to help individuals achieve their potential, find a role, career path and find happiness. Amongst the team designing the programme are a head teacher, learning and development specialist and CEO of an organisation.
We may work initially with 8 men but the impact goes far beyond that, to their partners, children and extended family, their employers and work colleagues, and to everyone they will meet and interact with, 8 becomes several thousand. The Blossom Charity programme stands for positive change for a positive future, please help us bring that about by donating to Mission:Possible.
