Geographical remit: 


To promote health and wellbeing by reducing the loneliness and social isolation of older men and women. 


Our organisation is part of a worldwide men's sheds movement,

The Dusty Shed is part of a worldwide movement called ‘Men’s Sheds’, however we do not restrict membership only to men. It’s a place where older men and women can work on practical projects like woodworking or almost anything else (within reason) they’re interested in, or simply turn up for coffee and a chat.

Our main goal is to improve people’s health and well-being by reducing loneliness and isolation. We specifically focus on men and women aged 50 years or older and live in Ely, Caerau, and the surrounding areas of Cardiff.
