A mature men's communal "Shed", for practical pursuits, so improving their wellbeing.
Men in Sheds was launched in March 2012 with the support of Age UK Milton Keynes. The organisation provides an opportunity for older men to meet together and engage in mutually agreed activities. Currently this includes woodworking, metal work and model making. Other activities include gardening, cooking, photography and art activities. It provides a space for older men to socialise, participate in personal and community projects and supports improved health and wellbeing in later life.Why the community needs us
Apply our practical DIY type skills on projects which support other community groups to deliver and so achieve their goals.Our impact on the community
Apply our practical skills which support other community groups to deliver and achieve their goals. In so doing, provide a sense of wellbeing and achievement to men who may no longer have a channel to do this, perhaps due to no longer being employed, being of ill health, or other limitations in their lives. Men In Sheds aims to provide a communal workshop, well equipped, where each may share and learn new skills, helping themselves but most of all enjoy themselves.
