Joondalup Men’s Shed

We are all about fostering better overall health and well-being for all men. This has an obvious beneficial ripple effect for our members’ families and the wider community.

Subiaco Community Men’s Shed

The main purpose of the Shed is to provide a space for men to gather, enjoy the company of their peers and either work on projects of their choice or become involved in assisting with a community project. No experience in woodwork or metal work is necessary, new skills can always be learnt by attending.

For innovative men, community projects are continuously being planned to help those in need and fundraising activities are often conducted to help raise additional funds to purchase new and more extensive tools.

For men who prefer to teach, the Shed is always looking for volunteers to help with facilitating city run workshops.

Silver Salties

Silver Salties is a physical activity and social connections initiative for older Australians. It includes accessible, friendly, safe and beneficial activities at the park, clubhouse, beach, pool and surf which cater for older Australians regardless of their age, weight, mobility, fitness and experience. Morning tea afterwards is always encouraged too!

Exergaming

Our Exergaming group offers light exercise to improve your balance and hand-eye coordination, with a friendly group to cheer you on. You don’t need to be tech savvy to have a go and to have a great deal of fun while using your body and your brain in a wide range of interactive games.

Please note that places are limited so bookings are essential.
