Membership for Sheds and Shed Planning groups

Full membership

Open to Sheds or Shed Planning Groups (people working towards creating a Shed) who complete this form and pay a subscription. Members are able to nominate someone for the Management Committee and have one vote on behalf of their Shed at General Meetings.

By joining UKMSA you are helping to build a movement that will not only reach out to and improve the well-being of many more men than the current c.6000 but which will continue to benefit your Shed too.  The more significant the movement the more resources it will attract. The current growth rate averages 14 new Sheds a month.

We are currently supporting growth by raising the profile of the Shed movement and providing our website backed up by a help-desk service, guidance notes, templates and some discounts. We also work to build community through supporting events and our newsletter. 

The current specific benefits of joining as a member of the UK Men’s Sheds Association are:-

  • 49% discount on hand tools
  • 29% discount on power tools
  • Your Shed logo on our Map
  • Voting rights (1 vote per Shed) at UKMSA General meetings
