Repair Shed

 A place to make new friends and contacts, support and encourage each other and above all have fun!

The Repair Shed brings older men together to stay healthier and happier for longer by making, mending and learning. Our Repair Shed helps combat the challenges of isolation and the loss of social continuity associated with aging by providing a supportive environment in which older people who are practically minded and want to make things, do repairs, share skills and learn new ones.

The “Shedders” spend approximately 1/3 of their time on income generation through making items for sale and mending items that would otherwise go to landfill; 1/3 of their time on community projects (paid and unpaid) and 1/3 on their own personal projects.
