What will you be doing?

Men in Sheds Hull was established in 2014 to support socially isolated individuals, predominately men to get together and undertake practical activities. The majority of the members are retired and over the age of 65. The Shed provides the tools and resources the men need to work on projects of their choosing, at their own pace, in a safe and inclusive environment. The charity also organises social events such as trips to museums, factories and days out. Talks on health and well-being are held at the Shed for members to attend, as well as external health events at other organisations. Overall, Men in Sheds Hull gives a vulnerable demographic an opportunity to socialise, make friends and exchange skills all while improving their health and well-being in a unique space within their community. Our vision is to provide a safe, inclusive and supportive space where members can meet, have fun, engage in projects and take part in activities ensuring that Men in Sheds Hull develops into a valuable facility supported by a thriving and active membership.

What are we looking for?

  • Relevant skills/experience within the business community
  • Must be able to project a positive image to a wide variety of audiences
  • Porven experience of partnership working
  • Effective IT and social media skills
  • Ability to work independently

What difference will you make?

We would like to strengthen our current board of trustees from 4. This would make a real impact on the charity going forward with a new strategic plan and operational objectives in order to become self sustainable.
