2021 will be a significant year for our men’s shed:
We are celebrating our sixth year as a charity helping men avoid loneliness and isolation and join in with other men and members of our community.
Already we have proved that we can create fantastic opportunities for men to work with their hands in our workshop, or to pick up an instrument, learn and perform in a concert.
Beyond this, the possibilities are endless as we develop our new room where we can extend the opportunities available to members.
Research both here in Scotland and overseas indicates that men who connect with other men in the community live happier, healthier lives. Ask our members and they will attest to this.
The Men of Leith Men’s Shed is a values-based organisation run by men, for men. In this respect, it is an authentic men’s shed, established to cater to and empower members. It was established with reference to the Australian experience.
In this website, you will see clear evidence of the impact and possibility of the shed, especially in the growing number of articles written about us.
You will also get an introduction to the options you have as a member, how you can join and participate.
We will also outline a range of activities that we are currently involved with.
You can also enjoy a few short videos and vignettes outlining what we are up to.
