Service Lead - Roger Olley MBE

Roger has worked as an Including Men specialist since 2001 and led the nationally recognised ‘Fathers Plus’ service for over ten years.

His work enabled Fathers Plus to move from a locally focused project in the North East to a service which has influenced and informed central government, childcare and social care agencies in the UK, Ireland and internationally on the issue of father and male inclusion.

Roger co-authored the nationally accredited ‘Developing Men Friendly Organisations’ training and he has developed and delivered multi agency training on the issue of male inclusion for agencies and organisations such as Schools, Sure Starts, prisons, and social care agencies across the country.

Roger has a proven track record of assisting agencies and organisations to increase male participation in their services. He is a much sought after conference speaker.

Roger was awarded the MBE for ‘services to families’ in 2011.
