Sheds for community connection

Men's Sheds of WA is a community-based, not-for-profit organisation that provides a safe space for men to come together and connect, whilst working on community projects.

Men's Sheds facilitate important conversations and connections in the community, promoting a positive impact on mental health and wellbeing.

No two Men's Sheds are the same, however, the one thing that they all have in common is they facilitate important conversations and connections in the community, promoting a positive impact on mental health and wellbeing.

A Lotterywest grant of $533,200 is funding the build of 80 new Men's and Community Sheds, helping them re-engage with communities, broaden their offering to support wellbeing, and become more diverse and inclusive.

Lotterywest has been able to support Men's Sheds of WA since 2012 with almost $1 million in grants, all thanks to you playing Lotto.
