Men’s Sheds Central Coast Inc. was originally established under the name of Central Coast Shed Cluster Inc. in 2009 to assist in the development of Men’s Sheds on the Central Coast of NSW.
In 2009 when 5 Sheds were operating, or in the planning stages, the original Cluster was formed to support Sheds with matters of governance, contact with their communities, OH&S, funding opportunities and men’s health policy issues.
In 2011 the Shed family on the Coast has grown to 15 with more community groups seeking support in opening a Shed.
As the peak body for Sheds on the Central Coast and the lower Hunter region Men’s Sheds Central Coast Inc. continues to support the growing number of Sheds both in their establishment, their continued growth and has made important contacts with peak bodies for men’s health in the region.
With the number of fully functioning Sheds in the region, and others in their infancy a coordinated approach to Men’s Shed activities is only possible through a body operating outside the every day issues faced by Sheds. Men’s Sheds Central Coast Inc.is managed by the men from Sheds and from committed community members.
