The Scottish Men's Sheds Association has been doing some wonderful work promoting their goals and successes over the last few months in the national press. Here's a snippet from the latest example, a major piece in The Scotsman:
With Scotland’s population ageing faster than the rest of the UK, the scourge of social isolation needs urgent attention. Yet for years, individuals, communities and MPs have struggled with a solution to the growing crisis. Though prevalent across all sections of society, it is often men, who have weaker social networks and a propensity for bottling up emotion, who suffer the most. And while charity, NHS and government-led initiatives have offered up solutions, it is a grassroots movement - Scottish Men’s Sheds - that’s been leading a quiet but mighty “health by stealth” revolution in men’s wellbeing across Scotland.
It's a really great read, well worth a look, especially if you live in Scotland.-----------------------------------
