UK Men’s Sheds and Screw-Tite have partnered to support Men’s Sheds across the United Kingdom.
July 2021 sees Screw-Tite become the official Screw of UK Men’s Sheds Association (UKMSA) in a partnership that will provide support to Men’s Sheds up and down the United Kingdom.
With over 600 Men’s Sheds in the United Kingdom, Sheds provide safe spaces for men (and women) through making, repurposing, and repairing. In the Men’s Shed people make a variety of projects from Bird Houses and Bug Hotels to Coracles and Sculptures. Work in communities can vary from building storage units in charity shops to fixing bicycles and park benches.
Sheds help communities and provide a sense of purpose. According to an internal study bu UMKSA
- Sheds reduce depression by up to 89%

No pill can do this.
