  • Josh Quarmby
    … in conversation with Glen Poole

Josh Quarmby is the founder of Blokepedia, a community of men who have conversations that matter about the issues they care about.

Josh launched Blokepedia in January 2017 with the aim of giving men the opportunity to talk about issues that affect them, from mental and physical health through to relationships. Its target audience is men aged 25 to 55.

What originally started as a simple blogsite is now growing into a unique mix of online and face to face resources for men. This growth is driven by insight and feedback from the Blokepedia audience. Many men are looking for a way to connect with other men, to share their stories, to begin important conversations and provide support for each other.

Blokepedia aims to create a community of caring and supportive men who are encouraged to openly and honestly discuss issues they care about and that affect them. They do this by delivering events, activities and online resources that encourage men to connect, openly share their stories and discuss the issues and topics that affect them as men in today’s society.

The social issues and topics that Blokepedia aims to address through responsible conversation include: social isolation; depression; anxiety; male suicide; men’s health and fitness; parenting; relationships and relationship breakdown.

Josh says:

“If more men are aware of organisations like Blokepedia, which are simple and informal, maybe more men will find it easier to have those important conversations around things that are impacting their lives - it’s not always easy, but there’s no need for us guys to go it alone.”
