A safe gathering space for men

The Burpengary Men's Shed offers a safe haven for men in the community to come together, share their stories and seek support. The men's drop-in group takes place on the first Tuesday of every month from 6-8pm, offering a confidential setting where men can freely express their concerns about health, relationships and the stresses of life. Whether facing unexpected challenges or seeking guidance, the group provides a supportive environment where men can connect with experienced professional counsellors and legal advisors.

"Our primary goal is to create a space where men feel comfortable sharing their experiences and seeking assistance,” Burpengary Men's Shed spokesperson Rodney Hansen said. "We understand that life can throw curveballs and sometimes it can be difficult to navigate these challenges alone. Through our men's drop-in group, we want to let men know that they are not alone and that there is support available."

The Burpengary Men's Shed team recognise the importance of addressing men's mental health concerns and breaking the stigma surrounding seeking help. With the assistance of trained professionals, attendees have the opportunity to discuss a wide range of topics, from emotional wellbeing to legal matters.

"Nothing is too difficult to share in our confidential setting over tea and biscuits," Rodney said. "We encourage men to come along, listen to others' experiences and share their own. By offering a non-judgmental space, we hope to foster connections and provide the tools necessary for moving forward."

The Burpengary Men's Shed has garnered a reputation for its commitment to improving men's mental health and overall wellbeing. The organisation has successfully built a supportive network through various initiatives and programs where men can find solace and support.

The Burpengary Men's Shed is located at 1-17 Maitland Road, Burpengary East (in the second lot of buildings on the left, just off Old Bay Road). For further information phone 3465 2097.
