The Australian Mens Shed Association (AMSA) is a community-based organisation that’s accessible to all whose primary activity is the provision of a safe, friendly & healing environment. Members are able to work on meaningful projects at their own pace, in their own time and in the company of others. A key focus is to advance the well-being and health of its members & to encourage social inclusion.
So what’s so special about this new type of Men’s Shed? Men’s Sheds are a place of encouragement for all to take an interest in their own health and well-being. Good health is also based on many factors and becoming a member of a Men’s Shed gives a person that safe and busy environment where many of these things can be found in an atmosphere of old-fashioned mateship. And, importantly, there is no pressure.
You can just come and have a yarn and a cuppa if that is all you’re looking for.
Members of Men’s Sheds come from all walks of life – the bond that unites them is that they are people with time on their hands and they would like to do something meaningful with that time.
