SUPPORTING COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT ORGANISATIONS THROUGH PARTNERSHIPS

We recognise that non for profit organisations in our local community need the help and support of as many local businesses and people of the general public as possible.  In partnering with these local organisations we have offered our services in the form of free sharpening, technical and tooling support. We strive to support the development of our local community as we believe it is important to support each other. 


If any Gold Coast businesses have any old or unwanted tools or materials that could be of benefit to these non for profit organisations please reach out and donate.

Oxenford Mens Shed

The Australian Men’s Shed Association (AMSA) is the peak body supporting almost 1000 Men’s Sheds and is recognised as one of Australia’s largest male based community development organisations.  It was founded on the principle of sharing information between sheds and those communities wishing to establish and operate a Men’s Shed. It acts as a central hub for information exchange.

Good health is based on many factors including feeling good about yourself, being productive, contributing to your community, connecting with friends and maintaining an active body and mind. Becoming a member of a Men’s Shed provides a safe and busy environment where men can find many of these things in an atmosphere of old-fashioned mateship. And, importantly, there is no pressure. Men can just come and have a yarn and a cuppa if that is all they’re looking for.

Members of Men’s Sheds come from all walks of life – the bond that unites them is that they are men with time on their hands and would like something meaningful to do with that time.  A good Men’s Shed has a Management Committee that has developed a safe and happy environment where men are welcome to work on community projects, specific Men’s Shed projects or a project of their choice in their own time and where the only ‘must’ is to observe safe working practices….all in a spirit of mateship.

The Men’s Shed movement has now become one of the most powerful tools in addressing health and wellbeing and helping men to once again become valued and productive members of our community.
