Men helping men help the community
The Belconnen Shed is a community initiative conducted under the provisions of the Australian Men’s Shed Organisation (AMSA). The Shed is registered with AMSA (AMSA100626) . The key objective is to provide a place where men can go and interact with other men. In particular Men’s Health issues are a strong determinant of the shed’s goals and objectives.
Donations of money and materials have been previously made to this project and are available via the Shed’s website. The Shed has continued cause to fund raise and is presently $15,000 short of finalising the site as per the requirements of its Development Application. To date no Government assistance has been received for the shed’s construction. A significant amount of self help has been input into the project.
The project commenced with the first committee meeting on 11 Feb 11.
