Interview with founder of UK Men's Sheds

A nice interview with Mike Jenn, the founder of UK Men's Sheds, in the current The Big Issue. Here's a snippet:
“I didn’t know why men don’t get involved in community activities as readily as women do, so I figured I’d have one day that’s men only and one that’s mixed, and see if it made any difference. It never did.” Has he since learned why men are less likely to get stuck into local activities? “We’re conditioned to think we have to look after ourselves,” he explains. “We’re no good at asking for help when we feel bored or lonely.”
