The Men’s Shed is a social inclusion and community engagement movement that realises the value of people coming together around practical woodworking tasks on a regular basis.
The Janner Men's Shed need a volunteer to join and assist with the running of the project as well as supporting the secretary with minute taking and supporting the treasurer with finances.
Men’s Shed initiatives show health and wellbeing benefits when people, particularly older individuals, find themselves disengaged from their communities. The essence of a Shed is not a building, but the connections and relationships between its members. They are community spaces for people to connect, converse and create. The activities are often like those of garden sheds, but for groups of people to enjoy together.
The Janner Men’s Shed is supported by Plymouth Community Homes and was set up in 2017. At a typical session, around 20 members will attend and have lunch together, socialise and do woodwork.
The project meets every Tuesday from 12pm to 4pm at Leigham Community Hall.
