UK Men’s Shed’s Association

A not-for-profit, membership organisation working to inspire and support the development of as many Men’s Sheds as possible across the UK for the benefit of men’s health and wellbeing. Men typically find it more difficult to build social connections than women and rarely share personal concerns about health and personal worries. Men’s Shed provide a safe space to meet like-minded people, to have someone to share your worries with, but primarily they are about having fun, sharing skills, knowledge and gaining a renewed sense of purpose. As a by-product of all of that they reduce isolation and feelings of loneliness, they allow men to deal with mental health challenges more easily and remain independent, they rebuild communities and in many cases, they save men’s lives.
