Sheddit! is a registered charity, formed under the guidance of the UK Men’s Shed Association. Our aim to to promote greater social activity, improved mental health and better physical well-being for the men of Swavesey and surrounding villages.
Generally speaking, men do not tend to have the social networks of women, so when they are made redundant, or retire, or are bereaved -they do not have the friendship support network on which to lean on through difficult times.
Men are also more likely to find themselves socially isolated, especially those who live in a rural situation.
Sheddit! is a friendly place where people, not just men, can come to put the kettle on, chat and work on a variety of wood and metal-working projects, learn new skills and make new friends.
