Sons of the West

Graduates from the Sons of the West program

There’s nothing better than having a chat with a friend and the Sons of the West program is back to give men that sense of community again. It’s a program that guides discussions and provides opportunities to increase physical and mental health. It is delivered in partnership with Western Bulldogs Community Foundation.

This free, 10-week men's health program is open to men living, working or recreating in the City of Maribyrnong. Participants need to be over 18 and can register to meet at either RecWest Footscray (Tuesdays) or RecWest Braybrook (Wednesdays).

Participants learn about a broad range of health topics, increase their physical activity levels, enjoy eating healthier food and make improvements to their mental wellbeing. Most importantly, they share a health and wellbeing journey with support from other like minded men in Maribyrnong.

Previous Sons of the West programs have covered the following health topics:

  • Nutrition
  • Mental health
  • Cultural diversity
  • Gender equity
  • Cancer prevention
