Over the last 9 months, men2men has brought together a number of passionate volunteers, community champions and town councils to create a number of thriving, independent well being hubs in Cardigan, Hakin, and soon Carmarthen. Each will have a substantial workshop where men can work together and build up a support network. We have found that some men need other forms of wellbeing support, such as 1:1 sessions, mens sharing circles and where possible counselling. Some men benefit from working outdoors so we are also developing woodland therpy centres close to each mens shed, so that men can move between them to improve their wellbeing.
We are currently also supporting men in Burry Port, Tenby, and Llandeilo to establish constituted groups of their own, to develop wellbeing hubs through which local men and the community can be become involved.
There will shortly be three main well being hubs in each county in West Wales with a well recourced shed and access to a woodlanf therapy centre. CardiShed proves that people will travel to such a resource.
We are looking for new areas to help bring men together, to first of all explore how a wellbeing hub might help men interact in their area and what it might look like. We encourage men from the various wellbeing hubs we have helped set up to interact and cross share ideas and skills, so strengthening the evolution of men's wellbeing hubs and network accross in West Wales.
If you are interested in creating a men's shed in your town contact us.
Cardished is a well resourced men's wellbeing hub, offering a wide variety of turning, woodworking, pyrography, canoe building, guitar, drumming and music workshops.
