Men in Sheds

What are Men in Sheds?

A ‘Shed’ is a place where men, can come along and take part in craft based activities similar to those they would do at home or in their own garden shed but with the bonus of other like-minded men providing good company. It’s a social group where men can be productive, socialise and be part of their local community. Activities include woodwork, metal work, electronics, weaving, computing and digital photography.

The project has been particularly successful in attracting men that have proved difficult to engage through conventional health, education and training initiatives. The Shed facility provides a venue to share those life experiences in a more relaxed environment.

Support from Community Impact Bucks

Between 2012 and 2015 we set up the four Men in Sheds. The aim from the outset was for CIB to set-up and initially manage the Sheds, then to identify members of the group to form the committees and provide support to help them become constituted community groups.
