Rupanyup Men’s Shed Inc Update for May 2014

ruplogo 3There appears to be some confusion in the local community as to who we are and what the newly formed Rupanyup Men’s Shed Inc actually do.

Quite simply, the Rupanyup Men’s Shed Inc is a small group of like-minded local residents that support a wide range of predominantly Men’s Health & Wellbeing promotions.

The Rupanyup Men’s Shed Inc is mainly engaged with “out of shed” health activities and programs provided through an initial development stage until the erection of a final Men’s Shed building is completed by the Rupanyup & District Consultative Committee.

The Rupanyup Men’s Shed Inc form no part of the Rupanyup & District Consultative Committee and have no connections to their Men’s Shed construction project which is being undertaken as a totally separate operation entirely.

The Rupanyup Men’s Shed Inc is working to be able to offer the following services:

  • An activity centre where people meet for a cup of tea/coffee and a chat and can be involved in a variety of worthwhile community based health activities.
  • A place to receive and share information about local community activities/groups/services of interest to newcomers.
  • A variety of programs and life skills workshops that are individualised, relevant, flexible and appropriate to deliver positive outcomes for participants.
  • Access to information from external health resources available through internet based computers and enhanced with a printer, scanner and other resources.
  • Empowering people to create a sense of ownership of their own health and in belonging to our group, to lessen the effects of social or economic disadvantage.

To start some of these activities the Rupanyup Men’s Shed has formed a few groups that are working to deliver Men’s Health Programs, Carers Support, Swimming, Cooking, Walking and Dog Training, Photography, Internet & Computer activity programs for local residents.

Whilst there are some activities of a similar nature being delivered around the town, our groups are not specifically targeted to any age, location or gender restrictions.

For more information about any of the programs we have presented here, feel free to call either of the Committee Members below.
