Vincent Men's Shed
The Vincent Men's Shed (VMS) is a place where members can meet, share or learn skills, converse, work on projects or just come and have a cuppa in a safe friendly environment.
The Men’s Shed concept is not new, with over 1,000 sheds already up and running Australia wide and more being funded and built, we are part of a strongly supported movement called ‘The Men’s Shed Movement’. This movement has come as a response to a need for a greater focus on men’s health and wellbeing.
There is an Australian Men’s Shed Association (AMSA) and also a WA Men’s Shed Association (WAMSA). The VMS follows the basic structure recommended by these organisations, however, with the input of the members, VMS has created its own unique identity.
The VMS was a City of Vincent initiative, in 2011, a very well attended Communtiy Forum was held to gauge interest and support for a Men’s Shed, at that point a Steering Committee made up of community members was appointed.
Since 2011 the Steering Commitee and Council Officer’s have worked tirelessly to make the Vincent Men’s Shed a reality.
Membership is always open to join the VMS. For more information or to obtain a membership form please contact the VMS Steering Commitee at firstname.lastname@example.org
