This toolkit is the product of the four year Glasgow Caledonian University ‘Sheds for Sustainable Development Project’, funded by the National Lottery Community Fund.

Men’s Sheds come in all different shapes and sizes, so this toolkit is designed for Sheds at all different stages of operation and development. The idea is to have one place where you can access all of the information that you might need on your Shed journey.

The toolkit is split into two main sections.

Part 1 provides guidance to those thinking of starting a Men’s Shed, or those in the development stages.

Part 2 is for Sheds that are already established who might be looking for advice and information, for example, how to overcome unexpected challenges.

The toolkit can also be a useful reference point for agencies supporting Sheds.

There is no right or wrong way to start or run a Men’s Shed, and not all of the information provided will be applicable to you. This toolkit is simply here to provide easily accessible support and guidance where needed.
