About

What is The Shed Online?

The Shed Online is an online social community for men, founded by beyondblue, The Movember Foundation and the Australian Men’s Shed Association.

Like the original Men’s Sheds, The Shed Online is a place for men to socialise, network, make friends and share skills. It aims to recreate the atmosphere of “real life” Men Sheds – a safe space where men can feel confident to discuss and exchange information. The Shed Online aims to foster a sense of community and build men’s social networks.

In addition to being a place for men to interact with other men The Shed Online also provides men with information on health and well-being. Good health is based on many factors including feeling good about yourself, being productive and valuable to your community, connecting with friends and maintaining an active body and mind. Becoming a member of The Shed Online gives men a safe environment where they can find many of these things in the spirit of “old-fashioned mateship”.
