About our shed
Liverpool District Men’s Shed is happily located in the heart of the south-west Sydney region. Our Shed has developed from the actions of a number of local individuals wanting a Mens Shed in the Liverpool local government area. We are partially supported by Liverpool City Council and cater to the residents of Liverpool area and surrounding districts. If you live outside of these areas, and like what you see here, you are still eligible to join out crew. Feel very free to contact us. We would love to hear from you.
We are looking to develop a dynamic and diverse group of ‘shedders’ who are committed to the support of Mens Sheds in general, willing to put in some of their spare time and energy to support the local community, and be involved in the development of an engaged and friendly workshop environment.
If you have a skill-set that is useful, we want to talk to you about putting them to good use. If you want to learn some skills, we want to talk to you about how you can get them at Liverpool District Mens Shed.

— "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.
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.
