The 7th National Men’s Shed Conference brings together shedders and the Men’s Shed community with the aim to advance the Men’s Shed movement. Sessions provide shedders with the opportunity to share stories and lessons about ‘running the shed’, as well as practical workshop and health sessions.

We are hoping to include a White Ribbon presentation at our plenary on Sunday morning, titled ‘Sheds in the Community’ – the session will comprise of 3 20 minute presentations (with 10 mins after each presentation for questions). Ideally, we would like to have a longer-standing relationship with White Ribbon – but would like this to focus on ‘how Men’s Sheds can be a supportive community when it comes to ending domestic violence’. We want to be very careful we don’t send the message that men in Men’s Sheds are perpetrators but rather people who can identify behaviours and be positive advocates.
