Mayfield Men's Shed

Men's sheds are just like your garden shed, but they're a space to enjoy these activities together

What is a Men's Shed?



Why are they needed?

For a long time, research has show the negative 

Are Men's Sheds just for older people?

No! Many of the men who attend are retired but you don't have to be. This is because life after employment can be difficult and men often feel they have lost a sense of purpose and place in the world leading to feelings of loneliness and isolation. Men's sheds offer a vital community space to promote and facilitate conversations about men's mental health. 

Can women attend Men's Shed?

Yes! All genders are welcome at our men's shed Most men's sheds exist for the benefit they bring to men's mental health and wellbeing as they facilitate conversations about subjects men may find it difficult to open up about. This being said, Mayfield's men's shed celebrates and encourages diversity so all are welcome!
