Here are some commons questions we are asked with answers.  Of course if you still have a question please send us a contact form and we will come back to you within 48 hours.  

  • Can you describe your Men's Shed?
    Men’s Sheds are community spaces for men to connect, converse and create. The activities are similar to the old back yard shed only done so men can enjoy time there in community. They help reduce loneliness and isolation, but most importantly, they’re fun and can give a real feeling of accomplishment.
  • Who runs your Men’s Shed?
    Our shed is run by the men that use them, in a bottom-up approach. This grassroots model can often bring about stronger feelings of fulfilment and achievement in the men that develop them and has lead to better sustainability as we did not start with a large cash injection.
  • Is your shed just for older men?
    No, but most of the men that attend are in the older age group or retired. This is because a life after employment can be difficult and men often feel that they’ve lost their sense of purpose and place in the world. They can miss the routine and camaraderie between colleagues that often comes with working life. This can lead to feelings of loneliness and isolation which can be dangerous for their health and wellbeing. We recognise that age isn’t the only factor in loneliness and isolation, and our shed has many younger members who benefit from sharing skills, informal learning and enjoyment.
  • Can women join your shed?
    Yes most definitely. We have several women associate members who come in and enjoy working alongside the men.
  • How to join your shed?
    It's simple to join. Come into the shed during opening hours and you can have a tour. They will then give you an application form and you then pay $60 ($20 is joining fee). Once your application is received you can start you induction. Click here for membership form.
  • Do I need to be an expert or skilled in something?
    Nope. The Shed is a place to meet and enjoy working together with other like minded people. Members will mentor each other to develop new interests and skills
  • What level of involvement is expected of me?
    In general any member is able to be involved at the level of their own choosing, whether they want to learn a new skill or share their skills with others as a mentor, or to be a general ‘dogs body’ just helping out etc. Members may be asked from time to time to spare a few hours helping with fundraising activities such as the Bunnings BBQ.
