Men’s Sheds for Wales
The ACTION project at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David invites all interested parties to a workshop highlighting the opportunities offered by the ‘Men’s Sheds’ movement.
So what is a ‘Men’s Shed’?
A Men’s Shed is any community-based organisation which is open to all men where the primary activity is the provision of a safe, friendly and inclusive environment where the men are able to gather and/or work on meaningful projects at their own pace, in their own time and in the company of other men and where the primary objective is to advance the health and well- being of the participating men. Men’s sheds may look like a shed in your back yard yet they innovatively share some characteristics of both community education and health promotion projects.
Come and listen to John Evoy, from the Irish Men’s Shed Association share his thoughts and experiences.
