OMNI award 20130001

“Each member of the OM:NI (Older Men: New Ideas) Representative’s Group participate and facilitate their local OM:NI group. A representative greets each group member, establishes the topic for discussion, ensures every attendee has respectful time to share their experiences, facilitates discussion and supports men to express their ideas and listen to others. Without the commitment of the OM:NI Representative’s Group volunteers, groups would have had limited capacity to develop in a manner that supports men to discuss significant health and wellbeing issues, social isolation and coming to terms with and planning for their retirement. The success of groups today and the strength of the OM:NI program is testament to their commitment.”
