Online Community For Men
The Shed Online
The Shed Online is an online social community for men, founded by beyondblue: the national depression initiative, The Movember Foundation and the Australian Men’s Shed Association.
Like the original Men’s Sheds, The Shed Online is a place for men to socialise, network, make friends and share skills. It aims to recreate the atmosphere of “real life” Men Sheds — a safe space where men can feel confident to discuss and exchange information. The Shed Online aims to foster a sense of community and build men’s social networks.

“Every man needs a shed, but not everyone has one, so we’re building Australia’s biggest shed — and it’s online! The more men, the bigger the shed!” Jeff Kennett, Chairman of beyondblue: the national depression initiative
“The online world has just exploded. You used to lean over the back fence to talk to someone, now that’s what you can do in The Shed Online – you can talk to people all over Australia and all over the world. How good is that?” Harold Mitchell , Exec. Chairman, Mitchell Communication Group
“When I want to escape my house, I go to my shed. My shed’s a temple and it’s great for my mental health. The Shed Online will reach many men, especially those in rural and remote areas.” Tim Mathieson, Patron of the Australian Men’s Shed Association and Australia’s “First Bloke”
“I’ve got a small shed, but I’ve got big plans!” Luke Slattery — co-founder of Movember
