Men's Sheds Cymru

Every single person who hears about the Men's Sheds movement immediately confirms that it is a wonderful thing. If you're not personally interested we can guarantee that you know someone or have somebody close to you that would love the opportunity to be part of a Men's Shed. So what exactly is a Men's Shed? Essentially it is a Social Enterprise set up by Men for Men, and it's all about tackling the growing problem of isolation in our male population. There are a great deal of men out there with lots of time on their hands and a great deal still to offer. This is a chance for men within communities to come together, join or set up a Shed of their own and enjoy being around other males, talking, dreaming, playing, planning, creating, fixing, building, changing and growing. No two sheds are the same and what goes on in a shed is determined by the people who belong to it. A Shed is it's own unique, self supporting social enterprise with its own governance, constitution and ethos. There are currently around 2000 sheds in Australia, 200 sheds in Ireland and many emerging sheds across Europe. We, as the Association of Wales are here to support existing Sheds and Shedders, Advocate the potential of new Sheds and support those who wish to join or start Sheds. The model promotes "health by stealth" and generally enhances the well-being of all males involved who gain a sense of belonging and purpose, feel useful, connected and a part of their community again. Sheds are outward facing and often engage in activity that benefits the areas they're in. Its a win-win situation. So, there it is in a nutshell. The movement is new to Wales and this is a period of enormous potential and rapid growth. Be a part of it! Shed happens. Get in touch with us to find a shed near you.... if there isn't one, we'll help you start one! We're looking forward to hearing from you. Team Men's Sheds Cymru.

Just had a fantastic meeting with Simon Poole of Mens Sheds Cymru. Great to chat about the parallels and the differences between our projects. Most importantly chatting about the way that we can work together in the future 😎👍 Men's Sheds Cymru Make The Most Of Your Community CIC 4:28 training

We haven’t officially unveiled him yet, but yesterday our newly appointed project manager Tony Graham visited another two wonderful examples of Welsh Men’s Sheds....Coytrahen’s Housemartins and Rhiwbina’s Den dwellers. Thanks for the warm welcome and open, honest conversations lads...you’re all highly valued shedders and we’re really encouraged by this shared desire to fully drive forward the next few years of Shed activity here in Wales.

The Housemartins continue to inspire, overcoming recent challenges with outstanding offerings from their well resourced workshop and the lads in Rhiwbina have now added a fantastic allotment space to their Den. A Chinese film crew were on hand to document these wonderful developments and we even got to sample some of the ale brewed from hops the Den boys had grown themselves!

There’s a true sense that an exciting new phase of Shedding is about to begin, with a very real feeling of togetherness and a genuine hope of networking and celebrating Welsh sheds in the coming months.

The Frenni boys enter the wonderful world of Men’s Sheds Cymru with real intent! The first official session as a newly formed group in their new Hermon home and they waste no time in rolling up their sleeves. Projects galore in the planning stages...massive potential to secure funds to drive them forward and a fantastic atmosphere among the group from the very outset. Today they salvaged a gang-mower and set about removing it to their shed to fully restore it ready for sale. A pleasure to be a part of your adventure fellas! Next week’s meet can’t come soon enough!
