Its is great to see @SwanseaCouncil supporting the #MensSheds movement.

It is amazing to see how this support can help develop sheds that will have a massive impact on men in Swansea.

We'd love to help other local authorities to achieve the same.

Thank you to everyone that has filled in this survey.

We will soon be closing, and would ask you to share this one more time, and ask friends and family to give us their opinion.

This will help us, help you shape your shed network in Wales.

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.

Hugh Dunford Wood artist, designer, hand made wall paper artist and all-round interesting man, will be joining us in the Zoom Room tomorrow at 2:30. Everyone is welcome.
Here is a little sneak preview, a short video we were hoping to show during the session, but that is more difficult than we thought. Have a look at it now and join us to hear more and have a chat with Hugh.
We're looking forward to this one (we look forward to them all!).

Lockdown has had a massive impact on everyone’s life. The Samaritans have recently carried out some research: This clearly shows the impact lockdown has had on men’s mental health. We believe this is a great opportunity for more men to reach out and become part of the Men’s Shed movement.
