UK Men’s Sheds are excited to share this free online event for Sheds about Social Prescribing. The event aims to demystify social prescribing for Men’s Sheds, through presentations of Shedder experiences, recent research findings and a panel discussion and opportunity for Q&A.

This event aims to bring together the cross-nation Shed network and social prescribing organisations, and is open to anyone with an interest or involvement in Men’s Sheds (across the UK and Ireland) and to anyone working or involved in Social Prescribing.

This workshop will cover:

  • Social Prescribing and Men’s Sheds. Research findings presentation (Dr Bryony Porter, University of East Anglia).
  • Social prescribing in practice – the perspective of a social prescribing organisation
  • Men’s Sheds Social Prescribing Case Studies
  • Panel discussion and Q&A

We know there are many views and experiences around social prescribing within Men’s Sheds. UK Men’s Sheds have been part of the working group for the funded research project led by Dr Bryony Porter at University of East Anglia and we are looking forward to hearing the research findings about the experiences of Men’s Sheds and social prescribing, along with the other panel members – Dr Dani Hutcheon (Glasgow Caledonian University) and Aisling McGrath (Waterford Institute of Technology) who have each worked on projects with Men’s Sheds.

Ahead of the cross-nation event, there is the opportunity for Shedders to to offer their thoughts on Social Prescribing and Men’s Sheds. We’d encourage Shedders to complete the brief (2 minute) survey if you have time. Please follow this link to complete the questionnaire.
