Men’s spaces and places community survey (Wollongong)

Wollongong City Council is undertaking research into programs and services for men, with a focus on Men’s Sheds. The aim is to gather information to help guide future strategies in relation to places and spaces for men, including Men’s Sheds.

We have a short, five question survey (attached) as part of this project. The survey asks questions about participation, what makes environments safe for men, and why or why not men get involved in male programs.

We would appreciate you promoting the surveys with your own groups and/or distributing it to your networks. The survey is designed for both men and women to complete.
