To develop a “Men’s Shed” which will be a safe and nurturing place, where men of all ages can come together to work on projects, share skills & share experiences, at their own pace. Membership is open to all, although it is recognised that for the development and continuation of sheds, men usually need a separate ‘male only’ space to meet in order to maximise the benefits a shed can provide. But also be available to all members of the community to use the facilities and equipment to further their own projects at their own pace. To be inclusive and deliver benefits to all residents in the community. To improve the social & community involvement of men, who have time on their hands, as a result of participating in activities which encourage dialogue and positive actions. To develop a place to encourage lifelong learning for personal, cultural and health benefits. To improve and increase community cohesion by participation in activities that promote interdependence.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Once the project is up and running we can advertise for members to come and join the Mens Shed. The benefits of membership would include make new friends and renew old friendships of the men and women of the East Side, socialise over a cup of tea and some biscuits, and discuss their interest and the possibility of creating and developing them. Being a community group, the interests would be democratically selected launched, and developed. The Eastside Mens Shed would, as a community group, run for the benefit of the members by committee which is elected by the membership, elected annually.
