Meet Kerry Babbage
I see my role as facilitating a unified collective of people toward a common objective of personal development and fulfillment.
This role is crucial to the continued development of MATES, constantly developing new ways of optimizing, especially in terms of our programs, promotion & networking.
Working together with our Trust, Committee and other dedicated members has helped MATES develop new goals and levels of understanding to generate fresh and new ideas to further our works and links.
The continued development & unfolding of MATES over the past decade through practical and inspirational processes has provided clarity to create a multi-layered understanding, discovering how MATES works and benefits every individual, the organisation and the community at large.
Our community are open and supportive of MATES; the continued development of a community resource that has major implications for use regionally, nationally and internationally.
With the support and encouragement of those around us, utilising combined skills and wisdom as a team enables MATES to think more creatively, breaking down barriers and sharing our message with our community & the World of ‘What can be accomplished when working together’
Meet Paul Tierney
MATES for me is increasingly becoming an opportunity to pass on life learning's. It provides an avenue for me to direct my Creativity and interpersonal skills beyond dreams.
To create an educational environment that provides practical assistance for all men including at risk fathers and young men to develop new skills of confidence, responsibility and leadership.
When you are someone who cannot sleep at night because of the needless pain and suffering observed far too often and know that more needs to be done to combat it, you never give up searching, never give up listening and thinking because you are given gifts and knowledge that have purpose.
MATES for me provides purpose, it provides hope and ultimately we will not stop searching, listening and thinking. Because MATES has begun, already I am starting to sleep better and through consultation with like minded MEN I have found peace of mind that offers clarity and focus enabling me to share my Creativity.
The common theme I see and hear on the Street relates to MEN and counter balancing that are MEN wanting change and an opportunity to contribute to a better society. Tough communities are full of these MEN who have or are experiencing tough times, real issues, raw emotion. MEN who have been invested in but not been able to return that investment because of the ruts they fall back into time and time again.
