Norton Men's Shed

Norton Men's Shed (NORMENS) is a new venture for men and women who are feeling socially isolated. We are a member of the UK Men's Shed Association which helps us start up with advice and promotes awareness of the wellbeing benefits of Sheds.

A ‘Shed’ is a workshop, run by volunteers and is equipped to provide a wide variety of practical activities and hobbies with other people in a relaxed atmosphere. We offer creative distraction from circumstances by doing something that changes focus for a while.

Members are not expected to be experienced in using tools, equipment or materials. Other activities you could enjoy include crafts, technologies such as 3D printing and cooking.

Please visit the Norton Men's Shed website for more information about we do.

Referral Details

Formal referral isn't required to become a Shed member.

We are here for people who need a Shed for wellbeing reasons whether they acknowledge it or not!  We welcome those who come by introduction from agencies and who make contact directly themselves or through a family member.

Other notes

A Shed is composed of a real mix of personalities, skills and needs. Dementia sufferers have been involved in the Whitby Sheds and have made a contribution by their presence. Initial attendance by anyone is by discussion. 

We cannot undertake personal care and the Shed is not a drop in service. It is expected that attendance will be regular after some trial attendances.
