Shed Online takes the concept of Men’s Sheds and puts it into cyberspace! This shedonline website is somewhere men can get together, without leaving their homes and find friendship, information or just see what’s happening in the shed.
As a direct result of funds raised by Movember Mo Bros and Sistas, our men’s health partner, beyondblue, was recently able to launch The Shed Online initiative. It is a website where men can socialise, network, make new friends and share skills; aiming to replicate all the positive things men get from being in their own sheds or in a community Men’s Shed.
To give you a bit of background, the inspiration for The Shed Online comes from the 400 Men’s Sheds which are thriving Australia-wide.
“In those sheds, in towns across the country, men can get together, work on projects shoulder to shoulder, learn new skills and if they feel comfortable, they can talk to one another about light-hearted or more serious issues,” said Chairman of beyondblue The Hon. Jeff Kennett AC
