Men’s Sheds: Mateship, Community and Wellbeing (MEN’S HEALTH WEEK)

Men’s Sheds are community organisations that could be called updated versions of the backyard shed that has long been a part of Australian culture. Not all Men’s Sheds are the same, but they are largely based around the idea of men getting together to meet new mates, hand craft items, learn new skills, and undertake projects that give back to the local community.

Being active in a Men’s Shed also has positive impacts on men’s health and well-being, including better physical and mental health, improved energy levels, improved confidence, better relationships with their partners, and better social inclusion via new friendships.

Frank Richardson, President of the Strathfield Mens’ Shed, joins us to talk about some of the personal projects and charity work that Strathfield Men’s Shed have been able to achieve, the benefits of Men’s Sheds, and how you can get involved.
