Story

Story

Social isolation, loneliness and stressful social ties are common amongst older men, and are associated with poor physical health, higher risk of disability, poor recovery from illness and early death. 

Older men use fewer community based heath services than women, and are less likely to participate in preventative health activities. Pottering around in the shed is one way that men can find relaxation in their day, but apart from the 'local', what can men do for socialisation?  

The’ Men’s Shed’ movement sprung up as a way to tackle social isolation in men, particularly after retirement, as well as providing a more informal setting to talk about health issues.  

The idea is simple. Instead of men pottering about in their own shed, they get together and have a ‘local’ shed where they can not only carry out activities along side each other, but learn new skills, support each other and be positively involved in their own community.

We are raising money for much needed saftey equipment, Saw dust extractors, tools and materials to get the Bognor Regis shed off the ground and become a supportive social hub.
