Jubilee House Compound Nottingham Road


Men in Sheds is a  project that supports older men who want to get together, share and learn new skills - all in the welcoming space of a ‘Shed’. Age UK provide a ‘Shed’ (a workshop), tools, and equipment and a paid co-ordinator for support - but the day-to-day management of the Shed was up to each Shed member, with ‘Shedders’ deciding on activities they wanted to follow. This gave ‘Shedders’ control and ownership of their Sheds. Activities include woodworking, inter-generational skill sharing and socialising.
