In a nutshell a Men’s Shed is a permanent meeting place where lots of good community and healthy ‘self and group determined’ experiences take place. They take place by ‘everyday’ people with ‘time on their hands’ willing to act with the skills they already have within their local community.

The ‘Shed' is used for many different activities and run by a volunteer group for themselves and other men over the age of eighteen (usually) who have ‘time of their hands’, want to get out to socialise and maybe also do something (build/repair/up-cycle/create/learn/mentor) in between the socialising in an alcohol free and welcoming environment.

The Men’s Shed is for all men who might want to lead active lives, make a difference and build their communities into something better. It has older men and younger men, unemployed and employed, skilled and unskilled. It has a value system of: ‘we value you for who you are, not what you do or what you have done.

If you have skills that’s a bonus but not a prerequisite to become a Shedder!

Men tend to talk side by side and not face to face. They talk whilst they are doing something and that is what Men’s Shed is all about.
