The Inverclyde Shed


We are a group of like minded people who meet up to make + share ideas, skills and experiences.

The purpose of The Inverclyde (Community) Shed is to provide recreational facilities and advance the social needs, health and well-being of people living in the Inverclyde area. By creating, developing, sustaining and maintaining workshop facilities, we offer opportunities for people in the Inverclyde area to meet and undertake creative, physical, purposeful and recreational activities of their choice. Our membership is open to anyone over 18 years old and currently includes a wide range of retiree’s, crafts people, ex-servicemen, professionals, photographers, programmers, engineers, architects, carpenters and others.

We aim to reduce isolation of people in the area thus contributing to their physical and mental wellbeing and developing the capacity of people in the Inverclyde area to share their skills and knowledge with others in the community.

There is a growing body of research around social exclusion and the role that spaces like community sheds can play in addressing this. It has been shown that Sheds can help tackle depression and other mental wellbeing issues. This is the reason sheds are supported by the Scottish Government, Local Authorities, the NHS and Social health professionals.
