News and information about Men’s Sheds Cymru Association will be published here.

We are the Men’s Sheds Cymru Association!
We’re delighted to announce that the Men’s Sheds Cymru Association has now been officially constituted as a Cooperative with the support of the Wales Coop Centre and Hafan Cymru’s Men’s Sheds Cymru project.
Becoming a cooperative means that the Association is wholly owned by its members and seeks to ensure that existing Men’s Sheds all across Wales are fully represented and are able to play a part in sustaining and growing the Men’s Sheds movement across Wales. The Association is currently being run by our Joint-Chairs Robert Visintainer (Squirrel’s Nest Men’s Shed) and Malcolm Worth (Colwyn Bay Men’s Shed) along with Alison Pritchard (Dusty Forge Men’s Shed) who is supporting Robert and Malcolm as an additional board member. We’re very grateful to Malcolm, Robert and Alison for the effort that they’ve put in to date in getting the Association to this stage and now is the time to recruit additional board members to help provide the Association and the Men’s Sheds Cymru project with the strategic direction to move to the next exciting chapter in the Men’s Sheds story in Wales.
The Association’s aim is to ensure that all areas of Wales are appropriately represented on the board, so we’re seeking representatives from existing sheds who would be interested in nominating themselves as board members. It is envisaged that the board will meet quarterly so the time commitment should be manageable. To volunteer as a board member, simply email us at the Men’s Sheds Cymru project at for further details about the board application process.
Membership of the cooperative is free and available to all constituted Men’s Sheds in Wales. Again, please contact the Men’s Sheds Cymru team on for further membership information.

Proud we've been shortlisted to last 3 #jocoxcymru awards Tackling Loneliness Champions. Jo believed that we have more in common than that which divides us and this award is to highlight the fantastic work happening all over Wales on the issues Jo cared so deeply about #menssheds

This project builds on the relationship between LAUGH and Squirrel’s Nest Men’s Shed.  #menssheds support the wellbeing of men in the community. Squirrels Nest have collaborated with LAUGH to help develop a playful object for a person with advanced dementia.

Something new at the #mensshed plywood cut outs and spray painting, creative, therapeutic and very colourful.
