  • ‘Sheddies’ celebrate Health and Wellbeing in Sheds across Donegal, Sligo and Cork

    The Sheds for Life Awards, fondly known as ‘Sheddies’ were held in Cork and Donegal last week. Shedders from Sligo, Donegal and Cork who completed the ten week health programme were invited to the award ceremonies to represent their sheds and received certificates and awards.

    Sheds for Life is a community-based health promotion programme aimed at supporting the physical, mental and social wellbeing of men’s sheds members. The Irish Men’s Sheds Association designed a 10-week programme in conjunction with the sheds and a host of national healthcare organisations.

    The development of Sheds for Life commenced in 2016 and has been guided by the needs, wishes and feedback of the men’s sheds members throughout Ireland. The Sheds for Life vision is a future where all men’s sheds members can enjoy physical and mental health and wellbeing to their full potential. The next phase of Sheds for Life will be delivered to counties; Wexford, Kerry and Clare and is supported by the HSE and Sláintecare Integration funding.
