Volunteer with us

It is our aim to create a welcoming and vibrant workshop and run more activities in line with the requests of our members.  However, in these early stages of our development, what is key is being able to keep the space open Friday 10-5pm and Saturday 11-5pm, keep the space safe and give our members a great experience when they attend.

Can you offer a few hours on Friday or Saturday?

What help do we need?

  • Keeping the Shed open, opening up and locking up

  • Help us create a Welcoming space - using your ideas to keep the place tidy, register new members, learn how to use equipment safely

  • Bring your own skills in woodwork, bike servicing, design and use them to teach others

  • Ensure the space is safe and that equipment is safe to use

  • To stand in for the Volunteer Project Manager if he needs to step out

 

More generally if you have power tools skills or a general love of a being in a creative workshop space, we would love your help with all or some of the tasks above.

What will you gain by volunteering with us?

  • The opportunity be part of an unique community project for older men

  • Be part of the solution to solving social isolation and improving health and wellbeing

  • Learn new skills in woodwork, and design

  • We are currently unable to reimburse travel expenses
