You’re invited to join us for a special twilight event to celebrate the end of the year with your local member community.

Enjoy drinks and canapés in a relaxing atmosphere, network with industry colleagues and reflect on the year that was.

You’ll also hear from Dr Helen Barrie, Deputy Director at the University of Adelaide’s Hugo Centre for Migration and Population Research. Dr Barrie will discuss her research into Men’s Sheds, having recently returned from an international study tour.

Dr Barrie’s global inquiry into the unique and universal approaches of Men’s Sheds addresses the issue of social isolation. Men’s Sheds combine opportunities for increasing social networks and creating a sense of community and belonging, while providing links to health and wellbeing information and services. Men’s Sheds have been successfully established in Australia for over 20 years, with over 980 sheds countrywide now supporting over 150,000 individuals. Internationally there are over 2,000 sheds spanning at least ten countries.

We hope you’ll be able to join us. Save the date in your calendar and register now to avoid missing out.
