Appoint a Minister for Men and Boys

Petition Details

Appoint a Minister for Men and Boys to address problems that either exclusively or disproportionately involve men. Issues such as:

- Male Health Issues
- Suicide
- Educational outcomes
- Rough sleeping
- Involvement with the criminal justice system
- Victims of violent crime

Additional Information

Issues that disproportionately involve men and boys are having a serious impact on wider society and require specific attention. We need an evidence-based strategy to help men and boys, as men make up:

- 74% of all suicides
- 85% of rough sleepers
- 72% of murder victims
- 96% of the prison population

These men and boys require targeted help and intervention. We need to develop evidence-based policies to improve their outcomes. They need our support, and the whole of society will benefit.

If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
