By applying, you agree to abide by the Scottish Men’s Sheds Association (SMSA) Constitutional Purposes below, our Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy:  

The main purpose of the organisation is to ensure that all men in Scotland have access to opportunities for increased citizenship and community development through the Scottish Men’s Sheds Association which can positively impact on their health, wellbeing and education, by:

  1. Promoting, advancing and supporting an effective and sustainable Scottish Men’s Sheds Movement.
  2. Representing the interests of men, Shedders, Men’s Sheds and the Men’s Sheds movement to all stakeholders including men, their community, their sheds, business, the health profession and all levels of government.
  3. To provide a direct ‘grassroots’ community based service of information, guidance and support to communities, organisations and/or individuals seeking to develop a Men’s Shed within their community.
  4. To enable information sharing, communication and co-operation among Men’s Sheds in Scotland, through the provision of an interactive website and social media for Men’s Sheds and the wider community.
  5. To advance education among those taking part in Men’s Sheds and the wider public, through the provision of a service of community based presentations, workshops and seminars regarding good practice in advancing the education, health and wellbeing of men through community based Men’s Sheds.

The Scottish Men’s Sheds Association (SMSA) Charity SC 045139 recognises a Men’s Shed as any community-based, non-profit, non-commercial organisation that is accessible to all men and whose primary activity is the provision of a safe, friendly and healing environment where men are able to socialise and work on meaningful projects at their own pace, in their own time, in the company of other men. A major objective is to advance the wellbeing and health of the membership. The Scottish Men’s Sheds Association advises that Men’s Sheds who are registered with SMSA maintain an open door policy and conduct themselves in a non-discriminating manor, have a  membership, ensure and observe safe work practices, aim at improving the wellbeing of all men and support their community.

In short. We already feel invigorated, more motivated, more active, healthier and indeed happier. Isn’t that what a Shed is about?- Bill B
Your advice and help in negotiating and securing us a lease has been invaluable. We wish you every success in developing the SMSA to the point that every area in Scotland will have a regional advisor.- Alan P
There have been times when the task ahead of us has seemed too much and without your presence to re-kindle our motivation we might have faltered.- Peter
