Men in Sheds is a ground breaking project for older men. Activities include woodworking, skills sharing and socialising.

 

What is Men in Sheds?

Men in Sheds is a project that supports older men who want to get together to share and learn new wood-working skills. Age UK Notts provides the ‘shed’ – a workshop, tools and equipment and a co-ordinator for support. But the day-to-day running of the shed is left to the shed members who choose the activities they want to participate in.
Shed members come from a wide variety of backgrounds ranging from highly skilled to beginners. All work together and there is a role
for everyone.
