What projects can the Shed help with?

Our Shed's ability and willingness to undertake particular projects depends on a number of factors:

  • The type of work is a very important consideration. As a not-for-profit organisation, we try not to do work that could compete with local busnesses and workers.
  • We are reulctant to take on projects away from the Shed, because taking volunteers away from the Shed can easily work against our primary purpose - which is to provide a place for men to be in the company of other men. 
  • The skills we have available vary over time and depend a lot on the current committments of our volunteers.

It may also help to understand that we are a not-for-profit organisation that is sometimes in a position to undertake community projects, rather than an organisation focussed on providing community services.

Our primary community service is addressing men's health and related issues, by providing a place for men to gather and do men's 'stuff'. Our ability to do other community projects is a by-product of our activities, rather than our main purpose.

Having said all that, if you have a project that you would like the Shed to help with, use the question form on the right to send us a message. It does not hurt to ask!
