What’s so special about Men’s Sheds?

Australian culture doesn’t encourage men to talk about feelings and emotions, or to take an interest in their own health and well-being. Unlike women, men are often reluctant to talk about their emotions and to ask for help.

Membership of a Men’s Shed gives a man that safe and busy environment where he can learn new skills in an atmosphere of old-fashioned mateship. And, importantly, there is no pressure. Men can just come and have a yarn and a cuppa if that is all they’re looking for.

Just as all sheds are different, so are the members. They come from all walks of life, have different interests, skills and personalities. What they have in common is that they have time on their hands and the wish to do something meaningful.
