HOMEBASE is 1 of 13 projects to receive pilot funding as part of the Social Innovators Challenge, a $5.6M AUD phased multi-year investment in men’s mental health projects aimed at strengthening social connections for boys and men across Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom.
HOMEBASE, is a community-based initiative (with a research component) for men with chronic pain to develop opportunities for social connection through a wide range of specific men-oriented activities, the access to options, and a new idea of what support can be.
Provides a wide variety of activities including pain specific programs ranging from exercise to music, art, photography, cooking and nutrition.
We found a range of experts to help us design and provide safe evidenced based programs.
You can join group activities or have an individual exercise consult at one of our partner sites. If you haven’t been able to exercise recently, due to pain, the exercise component can help you transition safely with a program tailored to your needs.
The HOMEBASE HUB is a space to get together and work on projects, volunteer for community initiatives, or hang out. Inspired by initiatives such as the Men's Shed and maker movements, the HOMEBASE HUB is a collaborative communal gathering place. Join others to work on projects, give back to the community, or simply spend time connecting with others.
Provides a space for men living with chronic pain to connect with others who are seasoned veterans of this experience. It is about men helping men live through and with chronic pain.
This program is in progress. Check this space often for further info.
