Sheds are in the News!
Here's a round up of recent news concerning men's sheds.
In March an paper by BMC Public Health found that Men’s Shed activities can provide positive male health outcomes, often in unexpected and non-obvious ways. Shed users reported increases in their health seeking behaviours, improved perspectives on and management of their personal health, and an increased ability to overcome illness and recover. You can read the full paper here.
And on the subject of research, our very own Chris Manning got a mention in the Guardian recently, thanks to his involvement in research currently being undertaken by University College London. You'll finder the article here, item number 2.
