The subject of the health and well being of older men and the international Men's Shed movement is on the agenda at the up and coming FRN, (Furniture Reuse Network) national conference.
Total Reuse have been asked to host a 'ConverStation' at the event to raise awareness of Men's Shed's. Time has been put aside to organize a 1.5 hour session where delegates have the chance to visit 3 tables to hold 3 discussions with a facilitator/presenter on each table – so we will be running a 30 minute session 3 times.
If your wondering how a men's shed may be of benefit to a furniture reuse organisation it's fairly simple, older men like to make stuff, fix stuff and take stuff apart so if the reuse organisation has the space to accommodate a shed then they have people on site willing and able to repair, restore or refurbish furniture items.
