Men's Sheds provide a safe and busy environment.
Good health and wellbeing is based on many things including feeling good about yourself, being productive, contributing to your community, connecting with friends and maintaining an active body and mind. Men’s Sheds provide a safe and busy environment where men can find many of these things, and good old-fashioned mateship.
Not all Men’s Sheds are the same. If you look inside you might see activities such as furniture-making, woodwork, restoring bicycles for a local school, fixing lawn mowers, gardening or metal work – just to name a few. The common bond that brings men to the Men’s Shed is that they have time on their hands and would like something meaningful to do with that time. Most importantly, there is no pressure – you can just head to the Men’s Shed to have a yarn and a cuppa if that is all you’re looking for.
There are 13 Men’s Sheds across metropolitan Adelaide, and a further 70 across regional South Australia. To find your nearest Men’s Shed, visit mensshed.org or call 1300 550 009.
