Story

Age UK BRWF's Bromsgrove Men In Sheds really is a fantastic initiative. The concept originates from an Australian project started in the 1990s, called Men's Sheds, as a way of preventing and tackling loneliness and social isolation in older men where retirement can mean loss of status and contact. Recent times have reminded us of the importance of ‘social connections’ and a ‘sense of belonging’ - groups like Bromsgrove Men In Sheds have never been needed more.

To help support the running costs of the Shed, Bromsgrove Men In Sheds have launched a range of Eastee Products which they are planning to make in return for donations. For more details of the 2024 Product Range and how to place an enquiry, please follow the following link to our website:
