Event description


This is a training day by the Scottish Men's Sheds Association for Development workers in any sector (particularly Council, Third sector, Housing Associations and volunteer groups) who would benefit from how to support local groups set up a Scottish Men's Shed. If there are also new Men's Shed groups or individuals who are planning on starting to set up a Men's Shed this might prove helpful to you as well. By attending the participants will learn about the process successfully created and being implemented across Scotland by the Scottish Men's Sheds Association (SMSA).

A wide range of topics will be discussed including the Men’s Sheds ethos, community empowerment, approved OSCR Men’s Shed constitutions, charity status, male engagement and support strategies, inter agency and partner support initiatives and finding your place in the exciting journey taking place throughout Scotland of creating our own grass roots Men's Shed Movement.

The aim of the training is for empowering participants to have an in depth knowledge of the Scottish Men's Sheds developmental processes and feel capable of being able to support and guide local groups by implementing the SMSA's methodology to achieve successful outcomes.

We suggest you have a read through our comprehensive website of over 40 pages before the conference as you might have questions to ask not on the itinerary, this is your opportunity.
