A community shed in the heart of the city.
Melbourne Men’s Shed at Fed Square is an updated version of the shed in the backyard that has long been a part of Australian culture.
Melbourne Men’s Shed came into being from a community desire to have a space for men to meet in the city. The shed provides a range of activities for both working and retired men, from cards and digital photography, to woodwork and metalwork as well as opportunities to become involved in volunteer work, a walking group and social activities. Melbourne Men’s Shed is an inclusive space with the capacity to offer programs for disabled men, female members, artists, students and guests.
In this safe environment men are encouraged to:
- make things
- share knowledge
- build friendships
- become involved in community life
- support selected community projects
- improve health outcomes
