Subiaco Community Men's Shed

In the past decade a wide range of community-based men's sheds have appeared, each with their own unique identity and purpose.

The City of Subiaco has embraced this initiative and established Australia's first inner-city men's shed run by a local government authority.

Now, there is nothing new about men gathering together in their own space or spending time in their backyard shed – an acknowledged Aussie pastime.

What is new is that men, particularly retired men, are combining these two activities in a communal space called the Subiaco Community Men's Shed.

The common theme in all sheds is men utilising their skills, feeling useful and contributing back to their communities. Other benefits for men include:

  • having a place to be themselves and do what they want, when they want, at their own pace
  • having other men to relate to and chat to
  • making new friends
  • having a place to exchange ideas and be heard without judgement
  • having a place to learn
  • having a place to teach
  • having a place to volunteer time in
  • being in a supportive environment that can assist with referrals to other city services if needed.

The shed is part of the Australian Men's Shed Association.
