The Men’s Shed movement began in Australia and has spread worldwide. Sheds provide a social and practical outlet for men, many of whom might otherwise become isolated. “Sheds” have become recognised as major contributor to the improvement of men’s health and wellbeing. 

The Men’s Shed movement recognises the particular challenges which men face around life changes such as retirement, social isolation and a lack of established social circles once away from the working environment, and also the isolation and lack of direction which men can experience due to, say, long-term unemployment. 

Men’s Sheds are not always exclusively for men, and many Men's Sheds have women actively participating, but a Men’s Shed provides those facilities to address needs particular to men and the different ways in which men live, communicate and interact. A common saying is that “Men don’t talk face to face, they talk shoulder to shoulder”.

Let's make 'Fabrication and Repair Service for good causes' happen
