  • Newsflash: Adelaide Men's Shed

    September 2020 Update

    Earlier in 2020, we held an expression of interest (EOI) for a third party to deliver a CBD-based Men’s Shed at the Joinery on Franklin Street. Although there was a lot of interest, we unfortunately did not receive any formal submissions within the period. Click here to read about the EOI call.

    Despite this initial set back, Council were still supportive of this project due to the positive feedback we received and have since been assessing other ways the project can be delivered for the city.

    In August 2020, a $30,000 budget was included in Council’s Integrated Business Plan and Budget to construct the Men’s Shed. We have been working with a small group of community members and service providers to develop a draft concept plan, which we hope will receive the necessary approvals for construction towards the end of this calendar year 2020.

    We also have the beginnings of a Men’s Shed Committee with three volunteers confirmed and beginning to develop their constitution. They have all agreed that this shed will be open to everyone, meaning it will be a ‘Community Shed’. Details on how this will be run in a practical sense will be further developed in coming weeks and months.
