Men's activities and men's shed programs in Casey
A number of men’s activity groups and men’s shed type programs occur throughout the municipality. These activities encourage men to meet in a positive and supportive environment and provide opportunities to support men’s health, well-being and social interaction. Workshops and Men’s Shed programs provide opportunities for “hand on” practical activities where men can work on projects, with other men, in an informal and relaxed environment.
