MEN'S SHEDS TURN MEN'S HEALTH AROUND.
women have always shown greater interest in health issues, 3 to 1 than men.
About 5 to 6 years ago, the "Men's Shed" movement started up as a registered health Promotion charity. Problems with men's health such as isolation, loneliness, depression and other issues are helped greatly with men's shed's.
it is uniquely Australian where men are sharing and preserving the skill's they have that are relevant to the community.
I for one worked alone for years in my garage restoring furniture until 4 years ago I joined a new men's shed at Kincumber, and now I work with wood turner's, carpenter's, and professional retired furniture restorer's. Now we are nearing Christmas, we are very busy making toys for local charities.
there are now 560 "Men's Shed's" in Australia, growing at a rate of four a week, with membership of over 50, 000 men.
We are now exporting the concept to Canada, UK and Ireland.
What is the best thing about "MEN'S SHED"S"?
"IT IS BEYOND WHAT YOU CAN BUY"
