Supporting the Australian Men’s Shed Association

September 2018

The Australian Men’s Shed Association (AMSA) is the body representing almost 1000 Men’s Sheds and is recognised as one of Australia’s largest male based community development organisations. 

While doing a bit of a spring clean, we came across some PPE that was excess to our requirements or no longer suitable for our industry, rather than dispose of these items, Russell Pember suggested we should contact “Men’s Shed” and offer the PPE to them. 

AMSA was established in 2007 and funded by the Federal Department of Health. It provides practical support to Men’s Sheds and delivers a wide range of services that aim to improve the health and wellbeing of members and reduce the number of men who are at risk from preventable health issues that may emanate from isolation. 

Men’s Shed is a community-based, non-profit, non-commercial organisation with a primary goal to provide a safe and friendly environment, which is accessible to all men, where they’re able to work on meaningful projects. 

Chris from the Men’s Shed in Gosnells, came out and took delivery of the PPE, stating that they’d be put to good use with all of his members.
