About our shed

About Us

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.

Shed Activities

The types of activities which are available.
The principal activities are around carpentry, wood and metal turning, metal fabrication and welding, computer skills and computer repair. Other activities will be incorporated depending on what skills, interests and hobbies new members bring to the Shed. For non-workshop members there is gardening, table games and general social interaction.
Pre-membership Interview
All applicants for membership are interviewed to:
- obtain personal background information,
- provide information and be shown the Shed features so that the applicant can determine if the Shed is for them, and
- provide an opportunity to assess if the applicant and their motivations are appropriate for the Shed
Volunteering opportunities.
All members are volunteers. There is little scope for other types of volunteers. The major issue is that our insurances only apply to members.
Health Care Support
None of our members are qualified carers. They do not have the ability to attend to people with any medical conditions or physical or mental impairment. Our men are simply not able to provide any kind of health care support.
Membership Fees.
Membership fees are $50 p.a. plus $2 per day for tea/coffee etc except for the last Wednesday of the month which is the Monthly General Meeting followed by a BBQ lunch – Cost $5.

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.
