SIM Ep 672 IMD21 #5: Men’s Sheds

Ep. 672

Think you know what a shed can do? Think again. The UK Men’s Shed Association (UKMSA) is an incredible movement of community spaces for men to connect, converse and create. Sheds combat loneliness and encourage men to talk shoulder to shoulder – such a great, straightforward and vital idea. And so Mickey got on the Zoom to David Meli, the charity’s Partnerships and Community Development Manager, and Men’s Shed ambassador Allan Clarke to find out the hows, whys and benefits of being a Shedder. 

All applications for your very own Allan to be sent via the Men’s Sheds’ website, please, which you’ll find at
