About Us

Mission Statement:
"To enjoy each others company and promote work ethics while skill sharing for benefit of self and community, and to provide emotional support for those in need."
Rationale: Coolah is a small rural service town and surrounding community in Central West NSW. There is limited opportunity for men to socialise and get together to discuss mens interests. There is little opportunity for men to access mental health and general mens health advice facilities locally other than the Doctor and Hospital.
Aims of the Coolah Mens Shed:
1. Improving the self esteem of men.
2. Reduce social isolation of men in the Community.
3. Supporting young men in the community.
4. Intergenerational mentoring.
5. Sharing knowledge and skills.
6. Encouraging social interaction.
7. Providing emotional support at all times to those in hardship.
8. Provide guest speakers for mens health and mental health
9. Provide assistance for those suffering depression, and help prevent suicide.
10. To provide and teach proper OH&S safety procedures and skills
to members so they may use equipment and tools with safety

Positive impacts


"I've found a great group of mates"

Mateship is an important pillar of every Men’s Shed – first and foremost the shed is a place for men to knock about with a group of like-minded mates.


“I give back to the community”

Men’s Sheds are vital community investments delivering programmes and activities that foster community spirit and contribute to building a more inclusive Australia.

Health & Wellbeing

“My health and wellbeing is better because I'm a Shedder”

Many shedders experience improved mental health outcomes. Men (and women) involved at their local Shed report increased self-esteem through participation and learning new skills; de-stigmatisation of experiencing mental health and de-stigmatisation of prevalent social issues related to mental health.

Watch — More than just a shed

The Australian Men’s Shed Association (AMSA) is the national service provider supporting more than 1,200 Men’s, Women’s and Community Sheds and is recognised as one of Australia’s largest male-based community development organisations.

AMSA was established in 2007 by a collection of Australian independent community-based Men’s Sheds to represent, support and promote the Men’s Shed movement. It was founded on the principle of sharing information between sheds and those communities wishing to establish and operate a Men’s Shed. It acts as a central hub for information exchange.
