This toolkit provides practical tips and information for individuals or groups who want to start a Men’s Shed. Whether you are starting a Men’s Shed through an existing organization or as an individual or group of friends, this toolkit will provide some of the basic how-to as you move toward getting your shed started.
This toolkit is not necessarily intended for men who simply want to get involved in Men’s Sheds. Rather, it is for men in the community or individuals working with agencies who want to take the lead in starting a Men’s Shed.
There is more than one way to start a shed but this toolkit hopes to show you key points to think about along the way. Because of this flexible approach you should feel free to skip to any section at any time. Keep in mind that not all of the information will be relevant to you. Or you might find that you need different information at different times. Just use this toolkit in whatever way would be most helpful to you. Good luck!
