About our shed
Our Vision: "Men's Health through Social Connection". We aim to assist ageing men in facing significant life-change issues.
Talk of a Men's Shed in Sorrento began in 2013 and was revived in 2018. A short survey through the Sorrento Community Centre showed considerable interest in supporting a new Shed. With the help of the Community Centre and the Mornington Peninsula Shire, the "Point Nepean Men's Shed" became a reality. Membership support has grown to currently 100 full members and over 60 associates.
Our "home" is the former Southern Peninsula Rescue Squad helipad in Sorrento Park, where passive and social activities occur. We now have a second building in Stringer Reserve Blairgowrie for small assembly projects, a fully-operating car hoist and the home of our "Mobile Workshop'.
We are well established within our local community supporting projects for primary schools, pre-schools and other not-for-profit organisations. All activities are always managed in a safe and sensible manner, engaging men from all backgrounds in friendly endeavours.
Community Outreach, gardening, small construction, social meetings, motor group, music group, social card nights.

— "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.
