It’s a bloke’s world at Uniting AgeWell Men’s Sheds

Creating masterpieces, making new friends and improving wellbeing are just some activities our men get up to at our Men’s Sheds. 

Drop into any of our Sheds and you might see a number of men making furniture, restoring home items or assembling wishing wells for our residential communities. 

You might also see a few young men working with older men, obtaining new skills while sharing a laugh.    

Uniting AgeWell Men’s Sheds provides a safe and stimulating environment where men can remain active in body and mind, while forming old-fashioned mateship.
