The Shed Online brings Men's Sheds to your computer

The Shed Online is an internet-based social community for men, founded by beyondblue: the national depression initiative, The Movember Foundation and the Australian Men's Shed Association.

Like the original Men's Sheds, The Shed Online is a place for men to socialise, network, make friends and share skills. It aims to recreate the atmosphere of "real life Men's Sheds" : a safe space where men can feel confident to discuss and exchange information. The Shed Online aims to foster a sense of community and build men's social networks. In addition to being a place for men to interact with other men The Shed Online also provides men with information on health and well-being.

Good health is based on many factors including feeling good about yourself, being productive and valuable to your community,connecting with friends and maintaining an active body and mind. Becoming a member of The Shed Online gives men a safe environment where they can find many of these things in the spirit of "old-fashioned mateship".
