Kent Sheds is based on the international Men’s Sheds model. The idea behind the Men’s Sheds movement is that men are more likely to thrive in informal spaces, in the company of their peers, and through engaging in practical activities such as sharing and learning skills and helping the community.
At a Shed, you can take part in practical group activities such as woodworking and gardening, sharing and learning new skills, and also support other "shedders" by working with them shoulder to shoulder.
If you’re interested in setting up your own Shed, have any questions about what a Shed can do for you or your community, or just want to chat more about Kent Sheds then please visit the Kent Sheds website or call 07783 022112.
