Welcome to the AMSA

Established in 2007 by the Australian independent community based Men's Sheds to represent, support and promote the Mens Shed Movement and to act as a central hub for information exchange. The Australian Mens Shed Association is funded by the Federal Government to provide initial and ongoing practical support for the development of all Mens Sheds.

With over 1000 Mens Sheds registered AMSA is now the largest Association in Australia focussed on male health and well-being.
