Our Men’s Shed project is based at The Boiler House in Moss Side. The project focuses on men’s health by encouraging social integration, skill sharing and community building, facilitated through regular practical sessions.
Supported by One Manchester and the Manchester City Council’s Neighbourhood Investment Fund, Sow the City are running practical sessions to bring together the local community together and tackle social isolation.
Men’s sheds are an established model where community space is created for men to connect, converse and create. The activities are often similar to those of garden sheds, but for groups of men to enjoy together. They help reduce loneliness and isolation but most importantly they’re fun. The Men’s Shed is based at The Boiler House in Moss Side. Nick, an experienced joiner, carpenter and trainer, runs weekly sessions teaching woodwork to men of different ages and backgrounds. Although sessions focus mainly on woodwork and furniture restoration, many participants bring their own interests and ideas to the group. The Men’s Shed support ongoing costs by repairing and constructing outdoor furniture for local community groups. If you would some more information, take a look at a video of one of our weekly sessions here and the flyer here. If you want to commission the Men’s Shed team to undertake any projects, please get in touch!

I have worked with Sam for around a year now and this is the first time he has gone through with something like this. He may not make it next week but even if not this has been a bit of a breakthrough for all
