Redditch Community Shed is a charity set up in 2016 as part of the Mens’ Shed movement. Their motto is “Shoulder to shoulder” and is based on the fact that it’s easier to talk and make friends if you’re doing something together. The main aims of our project are to:
- provide a welcoming atmosphere to all
- promote a sense of worth
- combat loneliness
- encourage and transfer skills
Despite our association with the UK Mens’ Shed movement we are a “Gender Neutral” organisation and we welcome members of all ages.
Before Covid we met twice a week in our workshop and occasionally went out to other sites. We lost that workshop during the shutdowns and are in negotiations to move into a larger unit in the centre of Redditch. Here we’ll be carrying on with our wood working but we’ll have the space to expand into other activities.
