Scottish Men’s Sheds Association
The Scottish Men’s Sheds Association (SMSA) is the national support body for Scottish Men’s Sheds. We raise awareness of Scottish Men’s Sheds and the positive life changing impact they can have on men, their families and their communities. We support Men’s Sheds to develop and thrive following a model of kindness, shoulder to shoulder communication and active voluntary participation. Launching in 2015 as a Scottish charity, the SMSA offers support to the growing number of Men’s Shed groups which presently number over 181 across the country since Scotland’s first Men’s Shed opened in 2013. The tremendous uptake within this grass roots movement which engages directly with the traditionally hard to reach male sector of the population is the most successful model of preventative male health measures to have emerged in Scotland today.
