Carr Gomm

Men’s Sheds

“Men don’t talk face to face; they work shoulder to shoulder”

Carr Gomm’s Craigmillar Men’s Shed project is a dedicated, friendly and welcoming meeting place for men to come together and undertake a variety of mutually-agreed activities. It is a place where men can share knowledge, learn new skills and develop new friendships.

Men’s Sheds are designed to improve health and well-being among men, by providing opportunities for social interaction and enabling men to reconnect with their communities. This project is funded by NHS Lothian to support the health and wellbeing of local residents.

Members of Men’s Sheds come from all walks of life. The bond that unites them is that they have time on their hands – time that they are looking to fill with something productive.

If you are interested in finding out more, please contact Scott McNair our Community Development Manager.
