Men's Shed Policy

Published: 16 May 2018

A new policy is recommended for adoption to recognise the role that the Men’s Shed initiative plays in the Cairns region.

Council’s Sport and Community Services Committee supported the creation of the policy, which is designed to provide a framework for the establishment and management of new Men’s Sheds on Council owned or controlled lands.

The proposed policy recognises that the Men’s Shed movement has grown in recent years, with five locations currently active in the Cairns region. The initiative supports men’s mental health and contributes to the wellbeing of the community.

The policy would not affect existing Men’s Shed arrangements.
