“Community Sheds” have become an increasingly popular way of creating spaces where people can get together to connect, converse and create, in order to promote mental wellbeing. Shed activities help reduce loneliness, isolation and depression.
- Shedding is about meeting like-minded people
- Shedding is about sharing skills and knowledge and having the support of your peers
- Mind Sheds are member led and Shed members, or “Shedders” decide what activities they want to do in their particular Shed
- Mind sheds come in all shapes and sizes across different locations
