Running a Successful Event

This section of the resource pack contains information on various aspects of running an event. These do not constitute a 'How To' guide but provide ideas plus guidance on various aspects of organising an event from fundraising to securing successful media coverage for your event.

Events from previous years

Men's Health Forum projects

The Forum has a track record of successfully working with men in a range of settings. The reports below will give you an idea of how gender specific approaches to health promotion can be successfully implemented:


Following advice from the NMHW2005 Evaluation process, the MHF has completed a piece of research which will help you to fundraise for your activity. This was written in April 2007 and will help you identify sources of funding and how you can go about applying for funding for NMHW 2008.

Diversity and planning

The importance of your health promotion activity during NMHW 2008 to reflect and mainstream the specific needs of various groups of men cannot be underestimated. Therefore, we have created a specific area of the resource pack to support your work in this area, which also includes the contact details of key organisations who will be able to give further support.

You will also find diversity reflected throughout the resource pack.
