A Men’s Shed is a community-based, non-profit, non-commercial organisation that is accessible to all men and whose primary activity is the provision of a safe and friendly environment where men are able to work on meaningful projects at their own pace in their own time in the company of other men. A major objective is to advance the well-being and health of their male members.
MCC was established 126 years ago and has always had a strong presence within the community and has consistently explored options to serve the local community. The FELLAship garage is the latest initiative and is in response to a growing need to provide opportunities for men to have conversations with other men about issues facing them.
Men’s sheds provide a wonderful opportunity to reach out to men and provide a space to not only build, restore and fix “things” but also it is a space to have conversations with other men rather than bottling up and creating serious mental health challenges.
We are in the setup stage of our shed/garage now with benches being built, shelving getting sorted and many other projects to get the shed setup the way the guys want.
We currently have around 15 committed guys involved in the shed and are trying to raise funds to help buy tools, PPE, and materials for the shed.
