The Men’s Shed movement started approximately 12 years ago in Australia and currently there are around 40 Men’s Shed groups in Wales under the umbrella of Men’s Shed Cymru.
Each Men”s Shed is unique, but has a common thread in that they have been set up to establish support for men who require friendship, support and a sense of belonging.
Each shed has its own individuality with some sheds meeting at a variety of places including allotments, an industrial unit, a farm building, a hospital, a former court, converted Police garages. Caerau Men’s Shed meets at Caerau Community Centre every Friday for a cuppa, lunch, chat and various projects.
The members of the Caerau Men’s Shed have variety of different backgrounds and are mixed ages, but all share one common theme. To have fun, support, friendship and help people in their local community.
