Caloundra Men’s Shed Essientials
- Why Join?
As a member of Caloundra’s new Men’s Shed you can engage in a wide range of activities that are creative, challenging and can provide value to our local community all in a safe environment. As we work together we enjoy the mateship and support of our fellow men, typically while working on personal projects or community support projects.
Sometimes we just solve the world’s issues while chatting over a tea or coffee in the sun in our wonderful bush parkland setting.
- Who we are
Caloundra’s new Men’s Shed is a non-profit, non-commercial community organisation providing a safe and friendly meeting place for men to work on projects in the company of other men.
We are fully incorporated and affiliated with the Australian and Queensland Chapters of the Men’s Shed Association.
- Whate we do
Our members meet, socialise and undertake a range of meaningful and highly enjoyable projects (Personal, Men’s Shed or Community) and activities, at their own pace and in their own time with the advantage of guided supervision and great tools and resources.
- What we don’t do
We do not generally do repairs or undertake projects for the general public, nor do we compete against commercial businesses. The Men’s Shed is not an alternative or replacement for professional tradespersons or other qualified craftsmen. The Men’s Shed is not a welfare shelter, nor is it an alternative or replacement for the services provided by appropriate health and medical professionals.
A major objective of the Men’s Shed is to advance the health, wellbeing and social inclusion of all members through interest-based activities. We do this by welcoming men to meet and work on projects that are first and foremost personally satisfying and in many cases making an important contribution to the wider community.
We operate from:
- Corner of Allen and Queen streets, Moffats Beach, Caloundra QLD 4551
